I've just read your changelog for 1.7.1. I am still using 1.6.0 and plan
to update soon. However, we use 'latest-by-tag' command but based on
your comment it looks like it will break some of our internal processes
relying on 'latest-by-tag :(
So I am wondering why it has been removed and if there is a replacement
for it ?
The latest-by-tag command produced misleading, incomplete reports. It
was a broken mess founded on a misunderstanding of Koji's data structure.
If your processes were relying on latest-by-tag, then they were already
What folks should do instead is:
- pick a list of tags they care about
- query for the latest builds of package X in those tags
# for tag in $MYTAGS; do koji list-tagged --quiet --latest --inherit
$tag $MYPKG; done
I am open to adding more reports if there is a real need, but
latest-by-tag was beyond fixing.
