Is the idea that Fedora developers do not have to issue builds for ARM
manually, and the shadow server will just attempt a build everytime a
build is attempted for, say, Fedora 10?
Yes, the ARM koji will automatically shadow builds, for koji build tags, once they are
on the main server. We use the koji-shadow utility (available in the latest koji-utils
Speaking for myself, I'd be interested in making sure my packages
fine on ARM -- Robert Nelson has kindly given me an account on his
test machine -- and it would be nice to be able to issue scratch
builds for ARM only, and once fixed, commit the changes upstream so
that the next build is ARM compliant out of the box.
With that in mind, it would be nice if Fedora developers get to issue
builds on the ARM machine. Perhaps eventually integrate it with the
Fedora Authentication System, though that might be a lot of work
(RPMfusion still maintains a separate auth system, AFAIK)
That is the plan. You should be able to login into the ARM koji hub with
your Fedora browser certificates.
