This is a follow up post to the "RPM Packages explained" post. It covers
how they are made.
Public preview link:
It is slightly longer than I'd like, but one cannot really explain the
build process without touching on the spec file. I also wanted to
include enough code snippets so that readers could try the commands out.
Hopefully, it'll help them get a little comfortable with the process and
think about joining the package maintainers :)
While long, it's quite simple to follow though (or so I hope).

Ben Cotton and I are proposing a new editorial workflow for the Fedora
Magazine that will help us lower the barrier of entry and make tracking
easier for everyone: https://pagure.io/fedora-magazine/issue/2
Let's discuss it in the ticket (preferred) or here!
Senior Software Engineer
I read your article on Fedora Magazine – "Manage your passwords with
Bitwarden and Podman", which is really helpful! Thank you very
Following your approach, I tried on my Fedora 30, step by step, which
led to a failure, unfortunately. At last, it turned out that maybe I
should do a little modification to your `bitwarden.service` file:
Description=Bitwarden Podman container
ExecStart=/usr/bin/podman start 'bitwarden'
ExecStop=-/usr/bin/podman stop -t 10 'bitwarden'
- I added `Type=forking` below the `[Service]` line or the process
would exited unexpectedly
- I changed `ExecStart` from `podman run` to `podman start` which
would make sure podman start the `bitwarden` container created
I ain't a pro, and I'm not sure whether the modification is necessary
for others. If needed, I think this article could be updated.
Hey, I'd like to write an article about Magic Wormhole  - a tool to send
files form one computer to another safely.
- the problem it solves
- how to install it (dnf install)
- how to send message/file and how to receive it
- where does the file go trough and why is it safe
I have just prepared a pitch for a new article. The topic of passwords has
already been discussed in a very interesting article on Bitwarden, I would
like to talk about the advantages of having a local and encrypted db.
