We no longer execute this task in Fedora. It has been deprecated due to Fedora system upgrades using "distro-sync" approach instead of a standard update approach. Also freezing releases during development is inherently incompatible with maintaining upgrade path in all times. You can see more details in this ticket. This project is kept for archival purposes only.


An upgrade path check.

Upgradepath is a constraint that ensures the ability to upgrade from distro release N to distro release N+1. In other words no package dependencies may break when users want to upgrade their distro. That is achieved by requiring the higher distro release to contain at least the same or higher package build versions (in NEVR sense) than the lower distro release.

More information is at the moment available at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Taskotron/Tasks/dist.upgradepath .

This check can be run with Taskotron framework.


Run the check standalone:

$ ./upgradepath.py f20-updates

(see --help for full usage description)

or through the Taskotron runner, if you give it a valid non-testing koji tag:

$ runtask -i f20-updates -t koji_tag runtask.yml


This tool is developed as part of Taskotron framework. The same contacts and the same ways to report a problem can be used.
