Global Options


  --config CONFIG, -C CONFIG
                        Specify a config file to use
  --dry-run             Perform a dry run.
  --release RELEASE     Override the discovered release from current
                        branch, which is used to determine the build
                        target and value of dist macro. Generally,
                        release is the name of a branch created in
                        your package repository. --release is an
                        alias of --dist, hence --release should be
                        used instead.
  --dist DIST           Deprecated. Use --release instead. You can
                        use --dist for a while for backward-

                        Otherwise it is discovered from: Git push
                        URL or Git URL (last part of path with .git
                        extension removed) or from name macro in
                        spec file. In that order.
  --name NAME           Override repository name. Use --namespace
                        option to change namespace. If not
                        specified, name is discovered from Git push
                        URL or Git URL (last part of path with .git

COMMAND REFERENCE

 

centpkg build


  usage: centpkg build [-h] [--arches [ARCHES [ARCHES ...]]] [--md5]
                       [--nowait] [--target TARGET] [--background]
                       [--fail-fast] [--skip-remote-rules-validation]
                       [--skip-nvr-check] [--skip-tag] [--scratch]
                       [--srpm [SRPM]]
  
  This command requests a build of the package in the build system. By
  default it discovers the target to build for based on branch data,
  and uses the latest commit as the build source.
  
  optional arguments:
    -h, --help            show this help message and exit
    --arches [ARCHES [ARCHES ...]]
                          Build for specific arches
    --md5                 Use md5 checksums (for older rpm hosts)
    --nowait              Don't wait on build
    --target TARGET       Define build target to build into
    --background          Run the build at a low priority
    --fail-fast           Fail the build immediately if any arch fails
    --skip-remote-rules-validation
                          Don't check if there's a valid gating.yaml
                          file in the repo, where you can define
                          additional policies for Greenwave gating.
    --skip-nvr-check      Submit build to buildsystem without check if
                          NVR was already built. NVR is constructed
                          locally and may be different from NVR
                          constructed during build on builder.
    --skip-tag            Do not attempt to tag package
    --scratch             Perform a scratch build
    --srpm [SRPM]         Build from an srpm. If no srpm is provided
                          with this option an srpm will be generated
                          from current module content.
   

centpkg chain-build


  usage: centpkg chain-build [-h] [--arches [ARCHES [ARCHES ...]]]

                             [--skip-remote-rules-validation]
                             [--skip-nvr-check]
                             package [package ...]
  
  Build current package in order with other packages.
  
  example: centpkg chain-build libwidget libgizmo
  
  The current package is added to the end of the CHAIN list.
  Colons (:) can be used in the CHAIN parameter to define groups of
  packages.  Packages in any single group will be built in parallel
  and all packages in a group must build successfully and populate
  the repository before the next group will begin building.
  
  For example:
  
  centpkg chain-build libwidget libaselib : libgizmo :
  
  will cause libwidget and libaselib to be built in parallel, followed
  by libgizmo and then the current directory package. If no groups are
  defined, packages will be built sequentially.

                          additional policies for Greenwave gating.
    --skip-nvr-check      Submit build to buildsystem without check if
                          NVR was already built. NVR is constructed
                          locally and may be different from NVR
