Improving Packaging Experience with Automation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


We are working on a Fedora Objective about saving packagers’ time with an automation related to building of their packages. That includes but not limited to automatic rebuild of packages on dependency changes, removing manual work on writing changelog both in spec and later in git and doing release bumps on rebuilds.
The talk will be split into 3 smaller parts:
  • Presenting Objective to the audience
  • Comparing workflow of Fedora packagers with other distributions with demo
  • Discussing the objective with audience and asking for a feedback
This talk is about presenting our ideas of how to improve the quality of life for packagers (the lifeblood of our distribution) and getting feedback (in a panel-ish form) about how to further refine and improve the packaging and maintenance experience. This is becoming increasingly important as the way we deliver software is increasing in complexity with things like modules and flatpaks and whatnot.
