#705 Rust Packaging Guidelines
Closed: accepted 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by ignatenkobrain.

As part of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Packaging_Rust_applications_and_libraries we promised to write guidelines, so here they are: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/Rust

They are not yet complete, but we will make sure that they are in good state for FPC review for this week (although some spec examples are there, so feel free to check them now).

The rich dependencies usage conflicts with their prohibition https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Rich.2FBoolean_dependencies.

Question about these guidelines: you make use of the macros %cargo_build, %cargo_install, %cargo_prep, which is fine, but those macros are not included in the rust-srpm-macros on Rawhide.

The rust-srpm-macros spec file (http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/rpms/rust-srpm-macros/blob/master/f/rust-srpm-macros.spec) only installs "data/macros.rust-srpm" but not the files containing the cargo-macros, "data/macros.cargo".

Is this an oversight or is the cargo macros provided by another package I am not aware of?

@ppisar Yes, Change Page explicitly say that release engineering folks should support it (and there is ticket linked into it) and FPC should allow rich deps (at least the ones which are used in packaging).

@eclipseo it is in rust-packaging..

Of course I'm not actually going to write this up until the rest of the ecosystem is ready for it. Most important is that weak deps have to work. I have no idea when that will be but I assume someone will let us know.

@tibbs, how weak deps are related here? Probably you meant rich deps? ;)

Actually they do work for many years already, however rel-eng doesn't support that yet and I'm struggling with that since (sic!) February (i.e. more than half year)

Announcement text:

Packaging guidelines for Rust are now available.

  • x705 Rust Packaging Guidelines (geppetto, 16:24:56)
  • Just a note that this is unblocked now as rich deps. are fine in
    infra. (geppetto, 16:26:36)
  • IDEA: Add a note about rich deps to the EPEL guidelines (gholms,
    16:26:40)
