This is a dependency of sedlex, which in turn is a new dependency
of the next version of Haxe (v4.0.0).
Comment 2 Robert-André Mauchin 2017-09-12 06:41:55 EDT

A few points:

 - Group: is not used in Fedora, please remove it.

 - You can simplify your Source0 like this:

Source0:        https://github.com/c-cube/gen/archive/%{version}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz

 - Use macros: make → %make_build

 - rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is not needed in %install

 - The typical BR is ocaml-findlib, not ocaml-findlib-devel

 - Please slit your BR per line:

BuildRequires:  ocaml
BuildRequires:  ocaml-findlib
BuildRequires:  ocaml-ocamldoc
BuildRequires:  ocaml-ocamlbuild

 - I don't think this is needed:

%global _use_internal_dependency_generator 0
%global __find_requires /usr/lib/rpm/ocaml-find-requires.sh
%global __find_provides /usr/lib/rpm/ocaml-find-provides.sh

As you can see below, the Requires and Provides are correctly generated without this:

ocaml-gen (rpmlib, GLIBC filtered):

ocaml-gen-devel (rpmlib, GLIBC filtered):



 - Use the macro: %ifarch %{ocaml_native_compiler}
   instead of %if %opt (and thus, remove the macro definition for %opt)

Comment 4 Robert-André Mauchin 2017-09-27 02:58:01 EDT
All okay, package accepted.
Comment 5 Andy Li 2017-10-10 10:15:09 EDT

I can't remember what is the next step for me to do to get the package actually appear in Fedora...
Will a git repo created automatically or I have to find a sponsor or something?
Comment 6 Robert-André Mauchin 2017-10-10 11:35:22 EDT
You are already member of the packager group so you don't need any sponsor.

Fedora has changed the way to request package since August. We are now using a tool called fedrepo-req. See the help here https://pagure.io/fedrepo_req

First look at the Configuration section:

 - you need to log on https://src.fedoraproject.org/
 - there request a new token https://pagure.io/settings/token/new
 - this token is valid for two months
 - paste the token in ~/.config/fedrepo_req/config.ini like this:

pagure_api_token = <api_key_here>

Step 2: now request a new repo for your package (see the Usage section for details) with you bugzilla bug number:

$ fedrepo-req ocaml-gen -t 1468639 --monitor monitoring

You can also request new branches for f27, f26, epel7… with:

$ fedrepo-req-branch ocaml-gen f27

In both case, you will be given a ticket number (list of tickets are here https://pagure.io/releng/fedora-scm-requests/issues ). These tickets are processed by a human' they are generally approved within a day or two.

Step 3: Once your tickets are approved, you can clone the newly created repo:

$ fedpkg clone ocaml-gen

(If you've got an authentication error, make sure you are authenticated with Kerberos: $ KRB5_TRACE=/dev/stdout kinit andyli@FEDORAPROJECT.ORG )

Then you can import your SRPM:

$ cd ocaml-gen
$ fedpkg import /path/to/your/srpm

Commit the change like this:

$ fedpkg commit -m "Initial import (#1468639)"

Then push it to the repo:

$ fedpkg push

Now that the package is pushed, you can build it in Koji:

$ fedpkg build

If everything is fine, your package will be built on all relevant arches.
It will then be available on Rawhide in the next compose check.

If you have requested more branches, you can now process them too. First we switch to the version for which we want to build:

$ fedpkg switch-branch f27

Then since it's a new package, we merge master into the new branch:

$ git merge master

We push the new branch:

$ fedpkg push

And finally we can build the package for f27:

$ fedpkg build

When the building is done, you can request a Bodhi ticket in order to have the package included as an update:

$ fedpkg update

Fill the requested information (newpackage and this bug number), then save. You will be given a "receipt" acknowledging the request. The package will then be available in updates-testing shortly.

You can process other branch f26, epel7… the same way. Finally switch back to master when you're done:

$ fedpkg switch-branch master
