Subject: [fedora-virt] ANNOUNCE:
Rawhide virt repo for F12 users
As was done for Fedora 11 users, the tradition continues, only the
locations have changed.
We've set up a repository for people running Fedora 12 who would like
to test the rawhide/F13 virt packages. To use it, do e.g.
$> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << EOF
name=Virtualization Rawhide for Fedora 12 baseurl=http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f12/$basearch/
$> yum update
At the moment, it contains the F-13 versions of libvirt and virt-manager, but
as F-13 development continues, it will contain more. I'll send periodic
mails to the list detailing the latest updates.
A couple of improvements have been made this time around. Namely
packages are build with
mock instead of koji so that new packages can be
used a BuildRequires for other new packages. Also new builds are
triggered by successful koji builds of tracked packages against
dist-rawhide, so the process is a bit more automated.
Also, this is still a work-in-progress. The TODO list includes:
- include debuginfo packages in the repo (need more quota)
- find a better location than jforbes.fedorapeople.org
Comments most welcome. Help with the TODO list is even more welcome :-)
