OK, trying to make a blog which actually shows up in planet.fedora. We’ll see…
Tired of writing the same update message when doing the git upstream commit, when editing the specfile changelog and when submitting the bodhi update request? Some pieces which might help:
- If you are making an upstream git commit first, I have a script gitspec
available at http://github.com/leamas/pkg-scripts. This can create a new specfile changelog and/or bump the release based on the upstream git commit.
- When you have the proper changelog, it would be real nice if fedpkg used the changelog as the default update messages. I have submitted patches for this, and a patched fedpkg is available at http://leamas.fedorapeople.org/fedpkg (which is a valid yum repo).
- Don’t forget fedpkg clog. Using this you will generate a file clog reflecting the spec changelog which you can inspect, edit and finally use as the git commit message with -F clog.
