OSC plugin for cloning projects and forking distributions

Project description

osc clone

This command creates a clone of an OBS project, copying all packages, metadata and project configuration. If necessary, it updates the metadata to match the new project name. For this to work correctly, it assumes the project's name is <distro>:<release>:<component>:

$ osc clone debian:jessie:main debian:stretch:main

osc fork

This command clones a forest of OBS projects corresponding to a single distribution with multiple components. It copies projects, adjusting their dependencies to match the new project names.

For this to work correctly, it assumes the project names are <distro>:<release>:<component>:

 $ osc fork debian:jessie debian:stretch
