Getting source code with git
Spacewalk uses git for source control.
To checkout the latest version from git:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:spacewalkproject/spacewalk.git/
If you have a firewall that is blocking the git clone operation, you can also clone over http, although it is slower:
git clone https://github.com/spacewalkproject/spacewalk.git/
You can view the source via github
Commiter Git Information
In general, we want folks to send github pull requests. If you have commit access to Spacewalk, however, you can use either of the above URLs to push your changes. The https URL forces you to type your username / password each time, whereas if you use the git URL you can upload your ssh keys to github and not have to authenticate each time.
Source packages are available from http://yum.spacewalkproject.org/version/OS/release/source directories.
RPM Package Signing
We use a number of GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) keys to sign our software packages. The necessary public keys are included in relevant products and are used automatically to verify software updates. You can also check the packages manually using the keys on this page.
To verify a RPM package for Spacewalk, run the command
rpm --checksig -v <filename>.rpm
The output of this command will show you if the package is signed, and which key was used to sign it.
