I'm currently in the process of packaging up fedora-repo-zdicts, a
package which will contain the zchunk dictionaries for all active
When running createrepo_c or mergerepo_c with zchunk support, the
directory containing the zdicts is passed in and createrepo_c will
choose the right zdict for each metadata file. The form of that
directory is /usr/share/fedora-repo-dicts/<release> where <release> is
the release that the metadata is being generated for.
My question is what <release> should actually look like. This is very
Fedora specific, so I want to choose whatever the easiest variable is
for infra to pass to createrepo_c or mergerepo_c.
Currently <release> is set to PLATFORM_ID in /etc/os-release (so,
platform:fedora-30 for Rawhide), but that's probably overly generic.
What would be a better pattern for <release>? fedora-30? f30? Just 30?
