Updating to an new upstream release

  1. Fork the repo.

  2. Checkout the forked repository.

    • git clone ssh://$USER@pkgs.fedoraproject.org/forks/$USER/rpms/dotnet5.0.git
    • cd dotnet5.0
  3. Build the new upstream source tarball. Update the versions in the spec file. Add a changelog. This is generally automated by the following.

    • ./update-release <sdk-version> <runtime-version>

    If this fails because of compiler errors, you might have to figure out a fix, then add the patch in build-dotnet-tarball script rather than the spec file.

  4. Do local builds.

    • fedpkg local
  5. Fix any errors that come up and rebuild until it works locally. Any patches that are needed at this point should be added to the spec file.

  6. Do builds in koji.

    • fedpkg scratch-build --srpm
  7. Upload the source archive to the Fedora look-aside cache.

    • fedpkg new-sources path-to-generated-dotnet-source-tarball.tar.gz

Testing

This package uses CI tests as defined in tests/test.yml. Creating a pull-request or running a build will fire off tests and flag any issues. We have enabled gating (via gating.yaml) on the tests. That prevents a build that fails any test from being released until the failures are waived.

The tests themselves are contained in this external repository: https://github.com/redhat-developer/dotnet-regular-tests/
