Copr build status

This tool is still in active development, so for the time being it is not packaged in Fedora proper. This will happen once the commands and data structures are reasonably stable.

You can install on Fedora 35, CentOS Stream 9 (with EPEL enabled), and Rawhide using:

sudo dnf copr enable salimma/ebranch
sudo dnf install ebranch

Local development

python -m venv .venv-dev
source .venv-dev/bin/activate
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install -q build
make dist install
make install
