New release of fedpkg includes two requested changes, one is to send
namespace along with repo name to lookaside while new-sources and
another one is to clone from https:// anonymous URL instead of git://
URL. Both of these changes require update to configuration in
infra. I think we need collaborate together in order to release fedpkg
Current status is, as we talked in fedora-admin IRC channel, clime is
working on patching dist-git, that will be reviewed, and then be
deployed and update configuration in infra ansible. Meanwhile, it is
still in Fedora 27 final freeze now (4 days remains though), therefor
it is not recommended to modify configuration to allow build from
git+https:// or https://.
According to our talk in IRC, it looks all these should be done
eventually after the final freeze. So, how about let us make a plan
for the release? My proposal is
- Revert to work with current lookaside upload.cgi script and clone
from git:// so that packagers can still build package from an
- Finish review and deploy patched dist-git
- Update necessary configuration in infra
- Enable what reverted in the first step.
As not all packagers will upgrade fedpkg at once, the configuration
should be compatible with older version of fedpkg, that is how it
BTW, I'm not much clear about which URL prefix is allow to build
package in your plan, https:// or git+http://, or both? FYI,
git+https:// is allowed previously, e.g.
@clime, we can test patched dist-git by using fedpkg-1.30-1.
That's it. Any thought? Please correct me if anything is not correct or missing.
 Support namespaced module name in lookaside upload script -
 Please enable allow to build from git+https:// -
Thank you all!
