Submitting module builds in Fedora
|With Modularity, you no longer build individual packages. Instead, you need to submit a module build.|
Module builds are triggered using
fedpkg from within your dist-git repository.
$ fedpkg clone modules/NAME $ cd NAME $ fedpkg switch-branch BRANCH $ fedpkg module-build
NAME— name of the module
BRANCH— name of the stream branch of the module
|Please note the module build ID. You will need it to verify the build state and to publish the module later.|
To watch the state of your module build, run:
$ fedpkg module-build-watch BUILD_ID
When the module is in a "ready" state, the build has successfully completed.
In case you want to control which packages get rebuilt and which get reused, you can enforce a specific rebuild strategy while submitting a build.
There are different rebuild strategies to choose from:
all— All packages in the module get rebuilt.
only-changed— Only packages that have changed since the last successful build get rebuilt. This is the default in Fedora.
changed-and-after— This one leverages build groups (buildorder). Packages that have changed changed since the last successful build get rebuilt, and also all packages with a buildorder higher than any of the changed ones get rebuilt as well.
To enforce a specific rebuild strategy, submit the module build with the following command:
$ fedpkg module-build --optional rebuild_strategy=STRATEGY
STRATEGY— name of a specific build strategy (listed above)
