Dear all,
Currently, AFAIK, the suggested method to upload new sources for a
package is using 'fedpkg new-sources' which uploads new sources from
your local system. I wonder if there is a method to upload new
sources from a URL rather than your local filesystem? It is
specially useful for large packages.
I wanted that, especially back in the day when I was managing mingw-qt
(IIRC ~ 100 GB of sources, requiring me to download and upload it all).
But no, AFAIK it's not possible.
:O Great! Currently, I can't even imagine maintaining any packages over few megabytes (maybe 100MiB tops, which will be a pain!), but not much long before, I had a hard time uploading a 21MiB data... specially since there is no way to resume uploading a source to look-aside cash (AFAIK). I was forced to retry a few times and pray so that it can be completed! :)
