Description Honza Horak 2014-10-06 20:14:49 UTC
Description of problem:
It would be great if copr could build packages from git repository directly. 
There is many ways to implement this:

If Sources and patches are links, it should be enough to git a path to the spec.

If we want to support dist-git like building, then we would have to support look-aside cache for storing sources and copr would get link to git where the spec file would be found. The look-aside cache could be common with fedora one.

Copr does this differently now and I quite like the general approach:
just import an srpm and it commits the packaging to distgit.
However cli commands to make more use of this would be really neat.
I think I will open a new RFE for that (basically clone, prep, local cmds),
but then maybe this could be closed?
