OBS service for downloading git tarballs


This is an Open Build Service source service. It downloads a tarball and parses its git ChangeLog file for information about recent changes which then go to the package's .changes file.

The Version field will be set to %(tarball_version)s+git.%(timestamp)s.%(commit_sha)s. Where tarball_version is the version as read from the parent directory inside the downloaded tarball - everything after the last dash (-) in the directory's name. timestamp is the current seconds from the UNIX epoch when the source service was run (if there were new changes). commit_sha is the latest commit sha hash from the ChangeLog file.

The git_tarballs service will also change the specfile's Source: to the filename argument of the service and the %setup -q line to match the parent folder name in the tarball.

On the first run, git_tarballs will just set the spec file's Version field to the latest git commit. The .changes file will only be updated with commit message information when newer commits (compared to the one now set in Version) are found.


Up to date requirements are kept in the files requirements.txt and test-requirements.txt

You can submit or ask for improvements using github's Pull Requests or Issues. If you're sending a patch, please make sure the testsuite is still running and also run flake8 on the files you've modified. It would be great if you could also modify this README file to describe new functionality and add tests.

You can take a look at the .travis.yml file to see how the testsuite and flake8 are being run.
