Tool for uploading custom patches to centos source rpm repositories

Project description

Alt-src is a tool for pushing SRPM metadata into a git repo.

PyPI version Build Status Coverage Status

Alt-src takes source RPMs as input, unpacks packaging metadata such as .spec files and patch files, and pushes them into a git repository. It's most notably used to populate CentOS git.


alt-src --push <branch> <package.src.rpm>

This command will check out the git repo for the given package and branch, unpack the input RPM and create/push a new commit using the unpacked sources. A tag is also created under imports/<branch>/<nvr>.

If a repo doesn't exist for the given package, the command will create one using the Pagure API.

The command accepts these inputs:

  • <package-filename.src.rpm> - path to a local SRPM file
  • --koji <build-nvr> - SRPM is pulled from configured koji instance
  • --koji <build-nvr>:module.src.txt - instead of SRPM, modulemd is imported

If enabled, the command also sends notifications to the configured email address.
