This project is inspired by fedora-easy-karma, but with more features.
It allows submitting feedback for bugs and test cases in addition to providing a comment and karma.
By default, all updates in
pending state that the user has not
submitted themselves or has already commented on are presented, sorted by
ascending submission date (so, oldest to most recent update).
The program assumes that the
rpm binaries are present on the system
(which is probably a reasonable assumption for a CLI tool targeted at fedora
It also expects a config file at
~/.config/fedora.toml, with at least the
[FAS] username = "USERNAME"
If this file is not present, the legacy
~/.fedora.upn file is used as a
If both files are not present, the username has to be specified with the
--username USERNAME CLI switch.
The username is used to authenticate with bodhi, and to filter out updates that the user themselves has submitted, or has already commented on.
RPM packages are now available on COPR:
To compile the program, first install
cargo (the build tool, also pulls in
the Rust compiler) and
openssl-devel (used by the OpenSSL rust bindings).
To download, build, and install the latest version from https://crates.io,
cargo install fedora-update-feedback.
To build from the sources provided on GitHub, download the sources
(recommended: tarball of the latest release from GitHub), and easily build
and install the binary for yourself by running
cargo install --path . in
the source directory.
cargo will install the binary into
~/.cargo/bin by default.
To make it available in
$PATH, either copy it into
$HOME/.local/bin, or add
~/.cargo/bin to your
$PATH (probably by editing
I'd like to improve the "visual quality" of the terminal output and pretty-printed data, which should be easy.
It would be great to add additional switches and arguments to the binary (for example, sorting updates by a different value than submission date).
