DESCRIPTION

gbp buildpackage-rpm is used to build RPM packages from a Git™ repository. It is an RPM counterpart for the gbp buildpackage tool that is designed for building Debian packages.

gbp buildpackage-rpm will, in order:

  • Verify that it is being executed from the proper location.

  • Verify that the repository doesn't contain any uncommitted source changes.

  • Verify that it is being executed from the correct branch.

  • Export packaging files to a separate build area.

  • Create an orig source tarball if it doesn't exist.

  • Call rpmbuild(1) (or the application specified via --git-builder), passing along all command line arguments that don't start with --git-.

  • (Optionally) tag the tree after a successful build.

  • (Optionally) call a post build hook - e.g. to run rpmlint™.

  • (Optionally) call a post tag hook - e.g. to push the results to a remote repository after creating the tag.

OPTIONS

--git-[no-]ignore-new

Don't abort if there are uncommitted changes in the source tree or the current branch doesn't match the PACKAGING-BRANCH.

--git-tag

Add a git tag after a successful build.

--git-builder=BUILD_CMD

Use BUILD_CMD instead of rpmbuild -ba.

--git-cleaner=CLEAN_CMD

Use CLEAN_CMD.

--git-verbose

Verbose execution

--git-color=[auto|on|off]

Whether to use colored output.

--git-color-scheme=COLOR_SCHEME

Colors to use in output (when color is enabled). The format for COLOR_SCHEME is '<debug>:<info>:<warning>:<error>'. Numerical values and color names are accepted, empty fields imply the default color. For example --git-color-scheme='cyan:34::' would show debug messages in cyan, info messages in blue and other messages in default (i.e. warning and error messages in red).

--git-notify=[auto|on|off]

Whether to send a desktop notification after the build.

--git-tmp-dir=DIRECTORY

Base directory under which temporary directories are created.

--git-vendor=VENDOR

Distribution vendor name.

--git-native=[auto|on|off]

Define the 'nativity' of a package. The default value auto makes gbp buildpackage-rpm to guess. Guessing is based on the existence of upstream branch.

--git-upstream-branch=BRANCH_NAME

Branch to build the orig tarball from if --git-upstream-tree is set to BRANCH. Default is upstream.

--git-packaging-branch=BRANCH_NAME

If you're not on this branch when invoking gbp buildpackage-rpm it will fail. Default is master. This is done to make sure you don't accidentally release from a topic branch. Not being on this branch will be ignored when using --git-ignore-new.

--git-ignore-branch

Don't check if the current branch matches PACKAGING-BRANCH.

--git-[no-]submodules

Include git submodules in the orig tarball.

--git-[no-]sign-tags

GPG sign all created tags.

--git-keyid=GPG-KEYID

Use this keyid for gpg signing tags.

--git-posttag=COMMAND

Excecute COMMAND after tagging a new version.

Exported environment variables are: GBP_TAG (the name of the generated tag), GBP_BRANCH (the branch the package was build from) and GBP_SHA1 (the sha1 of the commit the tag was created at).

--git-postbuild=COMMAND

Execute COMMAND after successful build.

Exported environment variables are: GBP_CHANGES_FILE (the name of the generated changes file), GBP_BUILD_DIR (the build dir).

--git-postexport=COMMAND

Execute COMMAND after exporting the source tree.

Exported environment variables are: GBP_GIT_DIR (the repository the package is being built from), GBP_TMP_DIR (the temporary directory where the sources have been initially exported).

--git-prebuild=COMMAND

Execute COMMAND from the build directory before calling rpmbuild or the application specified via --git-builder.

Exported environment variables are: GBP_GIT_DIR (the repository the package is being built from), GBP_BUILD_DIR (the build dir).

--git-[no-]build

Enable builder. Note: --git-no-build causes the postbuild hook to be disabled, too.

--git-[no-]hooks

Enable running all (cleaner, postexport, prebuild, postbuild, and posttag) hooks. Note: the --git-builder command is not affected by this option.

--git-packaging-tag=TAG-FORMAT

Use this tag format when tagging released versions of the package.

--git-upstream-tag=TAG-FORMAT

Use this tag format when looking for tags of upstream versions, default is upstream/%(version)s.

--git-force-create

Force creation of an orig tarball (overwriting a pre-existing one if present).

--git-no-create-orig

Don't try to create any orig tarball.

--git-export-dir=DIRECTORY

Export the packaging files from the current branch head (or the treeish object given via --git-export to DIRECTORY before building.

--git-export-sourcedir=DIRECTORY , --git-export-specdir=DIRECTORY

Subdirectories under export directory where packaging files are exported. The default build options of rpmbuild builder are also adjusted accordingly.

--git-export=TREEISH

Instead of exporting the current branch head, export the treeish object TREEISH. The special name INDEX exports the current index, WC) exports all files in the current working directory.

--git-packaging-dir=DIRECTORY

Subdirectory that contains the RPM packaging files.

--git-spec-file=FILEPATH

Relative path to the spec file to use. Special value auto causes gbp buildpackage-rpm to search and guess. Other values cause the --git-packaging-dir option to be ignored: the directory of the spec file is used, instead.

--git-upstream-tree=[TAG|BRANCH|TREEISH]

How to find the upstream sources used to generate the tarball. TAG looks at a tag corresponding to the version in the changelog. BRANCH looks at the upstream branch given via the --git-upstream-branch option. Other values are interpreted as treeishs.

This doesn't have any effect if --git-pristine-tar is being used.

--git-tarball-dir=DIRECTORY

Search for original tarballs in DIRECTORY instead of generating them.

--git-compression-level=LEVEL

Specifies the upstream tarball compression level if an upstream tarball needs to be built.

--git-tag-only

Don't build, only tag and run post-tag hooks.

--git-retag

Don't fail tag operations if a tag with the same version already exists, but, overwrite the existing tag, instead.

--git-pristine-tar

Use pristine-tar when generating the upstream tarball if it doesn't exist.

--git-pristine-tar-commit

Commit the pristine-tar delta to the pristine-tar branch if a new tarball was generated and the pristine-tar data isn't already there.

--git-mock

Use mock™ to build the rpms by invoking gbp-builder-mock.

--git-dist

Build for this distribution when using mock™ (e.g.: epel-6).

--git-arch

Build for this architecture when using mock, default is to build for the current host architecture.

--git-mock-root

The mock root to use. Defaults to DIST-ARCH from above.

--git-mock-options

Additional options to pass to mock. Default is to pass no additional options.

EXAMPLES

Only build a source RPM with rpmbuild

      gbp buildpackage-rpm -bs
    

Build an RPM package with rpmbuild on a custom branch with the uncommitted changes included.

      gbp buildpackage-rpm --git-ignore-branch --git-export=WC
    

CONFIGURATION FILES

Several gbp.conf files are parsed to set defaults for the above command-line arguments. See the gbp.conf(5) manpage for details.

All options in the config files are specified without the 'git-' prefix.
