We have quite recently changed naming of rawhide chroot to fXY in COPR and
I would like to know your opinion about it.
As branching is behind the door, I tried to consider it again and slightly
changed my mind. The main problem with just fXY is that it is probably not
very intuitive. "rawhide" tells clearly that rawhide repos are used whereas
with just fXY, the repos used for the chroot need to be switched at
branching (from rawhide to the fXY ones).
We were probably trying to be too fancy here thinking that the follow-up
features (all package rebuilding and chroot forking) will complement it
well. These features can, however, work with both namings and the "rawhide"
chroot just plays much better with mock and how it introduces the new
We can go either way but to me the "just-call-it-rawhide" seems to be more
simple now while also providing nicer user experience.
