My add-on repository revamped

dhorak1
I have used some free time during the holidays to completely revamp my Fedora add-on repository available at http://fedora.danny.cz/danny/ that contains some packages already submitted for review in Fedora, new experimental versions of packages already existing in Fedora and also some packages I find useful. It used to be based on manual work - build packages with mock, place them in proper directories, run createrepo and finally sync to my hosting space. Now I have switched to a Koji based setup where Koji takes care of building the package for all release/arch combinations exploiting Koji's external repository feature, the resulting rpms are signed with my GPG key using the sign_unsigned.py script borrowed from Fedora infrastructure, mash is used to produce installable repositories and only the "sync to hosting" step is still the same :-)

The infrastructure plan for next weeks is to start building packages also for RHEL/CentOS + EPEL. Also a switch from building from source rpms to building from SCM would be nice. And in the content I want to build newer versions of Tryton for releases that carry older versions - like versions 1.2 and 1.4 for EL and 1.4 for Fedora 12.

And finally how to use it - as user install the danny-release package from http://fedora.danny.cz/danny/. If you want to join me as packager write a comment here or send me an email (sharkcz at fedoraproject dot org).
