#52 Make "fedpkg switch-branch" showing which branch I'm actually on
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by robert.

Please make "fedpkg switch-branch" showing which branch I'm actually on like "git branch" is doing already. As alternative, please add "fedpkg branch".

{{{
$ fedpkg switch-branch
Locals:
el4
el5
el6
f12
f13
f14
master
Remotes:
origin/el4/master
origin/el5/master
origin/el6/master
origin/f12/master
origin/f13/master
origin/f14/master
origin/master
$
}}}

{{{
$ git branch
el4
el5
el6
f12
f13
f14
* master
$
}}}


Could we talk to FESCo about allowing the fedora-packager RPM to alter /etc/bashrc to include the settings from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Git_Quickref#Display_current_branch_in_bash ?

This would make life a lot easier for developers.

This is not an option for me and this idea does not satisfy my request. I really dislike the idea of blowing up the standard bashrc like openSUSE does nowadays - which makes starting a new bash ugly slow, because all the stuff inside of the bashrc is getting read and executed etc.

If you really want such a bash prompt thing, put a /etc/profile.d/fedora-packager.sh into the fedora-packager script and do it maye there, but never for the default bashrc!

Just committed something that will make this happen. it's not my proudest code, but it works.
