Description Ville Skyttä 2012-06-30 12:01:21 EDT
Man fedpkg, ditto in fedpkg --help:

       fedpkg new-sources [-h] files [files ...]
              Upload new source files

       fedpkg upload [-h] files [files ...]
              Upload source files

For someone who isn't intimately familiar with Fedora package maintenance process, this documentation wrt new-sources vs upload is insufficient and confusing.

"new-sources" behavior of removing existing files from .gitignore and sources (IIRC, it's been a while since I used it) should be documented, and "upload" also uploads new source files, it just appends to the list of existing ones.
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2012-07-02 16:01:04 EDT
It is documented in the specific help output for each sub command (fedpkg new-sources --help / fedpkg upload --help) as well as the fedpkg man page.
