Updating the frysk rpm in Fedora

Before doing this make sure you have a fedora account and that your environment has been set up by following the instructions described here:


  1. Check out frysk cvs modules (You probably already did this if you have followed the instructions above) But anyhow: Follow how to set up fedora cvs: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join#head-29b1437eeedc9e87ea0e5c92a9e52684876c30a3) then http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join#head-3de96e1e7f6c4c9197e8beb02a0b3d7a5eb9dada

  2. If a tarball has not already been created, follow the instructions on the release page


  3. Move the created tarball into the frysk cvs directory for distro you want to update
    • For example for f8 move the tarball to frysk/F-8
  4. Run make new-sources FILES=frysk-
    • This will upload the tarball to koji so you dont need to upload this tarball again.
    • It will also update the sources file to point to the newly uploaded tarball.
  5. Edit spec file:
    • Update version - release - Changelog - Dependencies' versions etc
  6. Clean up patches which have been pushed upstream
    • Remove the patch from cvs - delete the patch from the spec file
  7. Run make local (fix build problems)
  8. cvs remove/add files run make clog cvs commit using clog file as commit message
    • make tag
    • make build
    • This should kick off the koji build always make sure that devel is newer or as new as the other releases.
    • You can now go to the koji webpage to watch the build http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/ also koji will output the specific url to command line you can view the output through the web page or using koji watch-logs <ID>

  9. When the build is done you will be notified
    • If the build fails fix it, create a patch and try again other wise you are done and must now create an update using the rpm you have built.
  10. Go to https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/fryskClick on 'New Update' and push the rpm to the appropriate distros(f7,f8)/repos(stable/testing).

Comments welcome
