Copr Build:

A small utility to request package installation within a mock build root when
using the pm_request plugin.

It will be used by the next generation of Fedora Go (golang) packaging macros. However the utility is totally language agnostic and could be used pretty much in any spec file (it *is* written in Go).

It does make spec files mock-specific but mock *is* the official Fedora Build system. Writing such an utility was suggested in:

Hopefully https://github.com/rpm-software-management/rpm/issues/104 will make it obsolete someday…

Taking this review.

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2018-09-15 14:31:07 UTC
So it will be an 1.1, I had forgotten to check what happened when the command was called with no arguments

Comment 3 Neal Gompa 2018-10-19 20:32:08 UTC
Could you please post updated Spec URL and SRPM URL links for fedora-review to process?

Comment 5 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2018-11-05 13:10:20 UTC
Neal, please review this. The packaging is trivial, so I don't think there's anything to wait for here.

Comment 6 Neal Gompa 2018-11-06 14:45:52 UTC
Review notes:

[x] Package builds and installs
[x] Package complies with packaging guidelines
[!] Package is missing changelog and has "bad" release value
    - Please fix on import

Thanks for the review !

Comment 8 Mattia Verga 2021-06-11 14:25:31 UTC
Package never imported, resetting ticket status.

Nicolas, are you still interested in this?

Comment 9 Neal Gompa 2021-06-11 17:25:08 UTC
This package is no longer needed since mock can now do this itself when using %generate_buildrequires.

Comment 10 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2021-06-12 08:51:13 UTC
Let's close this then. Nicolas, please reopen if appropriate.
