Anyone have any suggestions . . .
Hopefully I’m at the right place to ask this question.
Does anyone know a good way to keep rpm packages under revision control?
How does the fedora team manage all those packages?
Are there any specific Version Control systems which are designed to work
with the RPM format out of the box like svn, cvs, git, sccs?
I would potentially like something that will automagically populate the
“Version” and “Changelog” fields in my spec files for some home grown
packages I maintain.
A friend of mine, Devan Goodwin, wrote a tool called tito (
which integrates with git and rpm. It can also do a lot of the distcvs
work as well.
It's currently being used by a number of projects:
cobbler - https://fedorahosted.org/cobbler/
spacewalk - https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/
candlepin - https://fedorahosted.org/candlepin/
sm-photo-tool - http://github.com/jmrodri/sm-photo-tool
I hope that helps.
