osc(1) openSUSE build service command-line tool.

SYNOPSIS

osc [GLOBALOPTS] SUBCOMMAND [OPTS] [ARGS...]
osc help SUBCOMMAND

DESCRIPTION

openSUSE build service command-line tool.

COMMANDS

add
Mark files to be added upon the next commit

In case a URL is given the file will get downloaded and registered to be downloaded by the server as well via the download_url source service.

This is recommended for release tar balls to track their source and to help others to review your changes esp. on version upgrades.

usage:
    osc add URL [URL...]
    osc add FILE [FILE...]

addchannels
Add channels to project.

The command adds all channels which are defined to be used for a given source package. The source link target is used to lookup the channels. The command can be used for a certain package or for all in the specified project.

In case no channel is defined the operation is just returning.

Examples:
    osc addchannels [PROJECT [PACKAGE]] Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit
    -e, --enable-all
                Enable all added channels including the ones disabled
                by default.
    -s, --skip-disabled
                Skip disabled channels. Otherwise the source gets
                added, but not the repositories.

addremove (ar)
Adds new files, removes disappeared files

Adds all files new in the local copy, and removes all disappeared files.

ARG, if specified, is a package working copy.

Usage:
    osc addremove [ARGS...]

Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit
    -r, --recursive
                If CWD is a project dir then scan all package dirs as
                well

aggregatepac
"Aggregate" a package to another package

Aggregation of a package means that the build results (binaries) of a package are basically copied into another project. This can be used to make packages available from building that are needed in a project but available only in a different project. Note that this is done at the expense of disk space. See http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_Service_Tips_and_Tricks#link_and_aggregate for more information.

The DESTPAC name is optional; the source packages' name will be used if DESTPAC is omitted.

usage:
    osc aggregatepac SOURCEPRJ SOURCEPAC DESTPRJ [DESTPAC] Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit
    -d, --disable-publish
                disable publishing of the aggregated package

                Allows repository mapping(s) to be given as
                SRC=TARGET[,SRC=TARGET]
    --nosources
                ignore source packages when copying build results to
                destination project

api
Issue an arbitrary request to the API

Useful for testing.

URL can be specified either partially (only the path component), or fully with URL scheme and hostname ('http://...').

Note the global -A and -H options (see osc help).

build
Build a package on your local machine

You need to call the command inside a package directory, which should be a buildsystem checkout. (Local modifications are fine.)

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output. BUILD_DESCR is either a RPM spec file, or a Debian dsc file.

The command honours packagecachedir, build-root and build-uid settings in .oscrc, if present. You may want to set su-wrapper = 'sudo' in .oscrc, and configure sudo with option NOPASSWD for /usr/bin/build.

If neither --clean nor --noinit is given, build will reuse an existing build-root again, removing unneeded packages and add missing ones. This is usually the fastest option.

If the package doesn't exist on the server please use the --local-package option. If the project of the package doesn't exist on the server please use the --alternative-project <alternative-project> option: Example:
    osc build [OPTS] --alternative-project openSUSE:10.3 standard i586 BUILD_DESCR

usage:
    osc build [OPTS] REPOSITORY ARCH BUILD_DESCR
    osc build [OPTS] REPOSITORY ARCH
    osc build [OPTS] REPOSITORY (ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
    osc build [OPTS] ARCH (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
    osc build [OPTS] BUILD_DESCR (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch)
    osc build [OPTS] (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)

# Note: # Configuration can be overridden by envvars, e.g. # OSC_SU_WRAPPER overrides the setting of su-wrapper. # OSC_BUILD_ROOT overrides the setting of build-root. # OSC_PACKAGECACHEDIR overrides the setting of packagecachedir.

buildconfig
Shows the build config

Shows the build configuration which is used in building a package. This command is mostly used internally by the 'build' command.

The returned data is the project-wide build configuration in a format which is directly readable by the build script. It contains RPM macros and BuildRequires expansions, for example.

The argument REPOSITORY an be taken from the first column of the
 'osc repos' output.

usage:
    osc buildconfig REPOSITORY                      (in pkg or prj dir)
    osc buildconfig PROJECT REPOSITORY

buildhistory (buildhist)
Shows the build history of a package

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output.

usage:
   osc buildhist REPOSITORY ARCHITECTURE

buildinfo
Shows the build info

Shows the build "info" which is used in building a package. This command is mostly used internally by the 'build' subcommand. It needs to be called from within a package directory.

The BUILD_DESCR argument is optional. BUILD_DESCR is a local RPM specfile or Debian "dsc" file. If specified, it is sent to the server, and the buildinfo will be based on it. If the argument is not supplied, the buildinfo is derived from the specfile which is currently on the source repository server.

The returned data is XML and contains a list of the packages used in building, their source, and the expanded BuildRequires.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH are optional. They can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output. If not specified, REPOSITORY defaults to the 'build_repositoy' config entry in your '.oscrc' and ARCH defaults to your host architecture.

usage:
    in a package working copy:
        osc buildinfo [OPTS] REPOSITORY ARCH BUILD_DESCR
        osc buildinfo [OPTS] REPOSITORY (ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
        osc buildinfo [OPTS] ARCH (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
        osc buildinfo [OPTS] BUILD_DESCR (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch)
        osc buildinfo [OPTS] (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)

buildlog (bl, blt, buildlogtail)
Shows the build log of a package

Shows the log file of the build of a package. Can be used to follow the log while it is being written. Needs to be called from within a package directory.

When called as buildlogtail (or blt) it just shows the end of the logfile. This is useful to see just a build failure reasons.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH are the first two columns in the 'osc results' output. If the buildlog url is used buildlog command has the same behavior as remotebuildlog.

checkout (co)
Check out content from the repository

Check out content from the repository server, creating a local working copy.

When checking out a single package, the option --revision can be used to specify a revision of the package to be checked out.

When a package is a source link, then it will be checked out in expanded form. If --unexpand-link option is used, the checkout will instead produce the raw _link file plus patches.

    Option -m works for all types of request, the rest work only for submit. example:
    osc creq -a submit -a delete home:someone:branches:openSUSE:Tools -a change_devel openSUSE:Tools osc home:someone:branches:openSUSE:Tools -m ok


    This will submit all modified packages under current directory, delete project home:someone:branches:openSUSE:Tools and change the devel project to home:someone:branches:openSUSE:Tools for package osc in project openSUSE:Tools. Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit
    --yes       proceed without asking.

delete (del, remove, rm)
Mark files or package directories to be deleted upon the next 'checkin'

usage:
    cd .../PROJECT/PACKAGE
    osc delete FILE [...]
    cd .../PROJECT
    osc delete PACKAGE [...]

This command works on check out copies. Use "rdelete" for working on server side only. This is needed for removing the entire project.

As a safety measure, projects must be empty (i.e., you need to delete all packages first).

If you are sure that you want to remove a package and all its files use '--force' switch. Sometimes this also works without --force.

Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit
    -f, --force

                specify message TEXT

dependson (whatdependson)
Show the build dependencies

The command dependson and whatdependson can be used to find out what will be triggered when a certain package changes. This is no guarantee, since the new build might have changed dependencies.

dependson shows the build dependencies inside of a project, valid for a given repository and architecture. NOTE: to see all binary packages, which can trigger a build you need to
      refer the buildinfo, since this command shows only the dependencies
      inside of a project.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output.

usage in package or project directory:
    osc dependson REPOSITORY ARCH
    osc whatdependson REPOSITORY ARCH

meta
Show meta information, or edit it

Show or edit build service metadata of type <prj|pkg|prjconf|user|pattern>.

This command displays metadata on buildservice objects like projects, packages, or users. The type of metadata is specified by the word after "meta", like e.g. "meta prj".

prj denotes metadata of a buildservice project. prjconf denotes the (build) configuration of a project. pkg denotes metadata of a buildservice package. user denotes the metadata of a user. pattern denotes installation patterns defined for a project.

To list patterns, use 'osc meta pattern PRJ'. An additional argument will be the pattern file to view or edit.

With the --edit switch, the metadata can be edited. Per default, osc opens the program specified by the environmental variable EDITOR with a temporary file. Alternatively, content to be saved can be supplied via the --file switch. If the argument is '-', input is taken from stdin: osc meta prjconf home:user | sed ... | osc meta prjconf home:user -F -

When trying to edit a non-existing resource, it is created implicitly.

rdelete
Delete a project or packages on the server.

As a safety measure, project must be empty (i.e., you need to delete all packages first). Also, packages must have no requests pending (i.e., you need to accept/revoke such requests first). If you are sure that you want to remove this project and all its packages use '--recursive' switch. It may still not work because other depends on it. If you want to ignore this as well use '--force' switch.

usage:
   osc rdelete [-r] [-f] PROJECT [PACKAGE]

Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit
    -m TEXT, --message=TEXT

rebuild (rebuildpac)
Trigger package rebuilds

Note that it is normally NOT needed to kick off rebuilds like this, because they principally happen in a fully automatic way, triggered by source check-ins. In particular, the order in which packages are built is handled by the build service.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output.

usage:
    osc rebuild [PROJECT [PACKAGE [REPOSITORY [ARCH]]]] Options:
    -h, --help  show this help message and exit

request (review, rq)
Show or modify requests and reviews

[See http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_Service_Collaboration for information on this topic.]

The 'request' command has the following sub commands:

"list" lists open requests attached to a project or package or person. Uses the project/package of the current directory if none of -M, -U USER, project/package are given.

"log" will show the history of the given ID

"show" will show the request itself, and generate a diff for review, if used with the --diff option. The keyword show can be omitted if the ID is numeric.

"decline" will change the request state to "declined"

"reopen" will set the request back to new or review.

"setincident" will direct "maintenance" requests into specific incidents

"supersede" will supersede one request with another existing one.

"revoke" will set the request state to "revoked"

"accept" will change the request state to "accepted" and will trigger the actual submit process. That would normally be a server-side copy of the source package to the target package.

"checkout" will checkout the request's source package ("submit" requests only).

"priorize" change the prioritity of a request to either "critical", "important", "moderate" or "low"

The 'review' command has the following sub commands:

"list" lists open requests that need to be reviewed by the specified user or group

"add" adds a person or group as reviewer to a request

"accept" mark the review positive

"decline" mark the review negative. A negative review will decline the request.

signkey
Manage Project Signing Key

osc signkey [--create|--delete|--extend] <PROJECT> osc signkey [--notraverse] <PROJECT>

This command is for managing gpg keys. It shows the public key by default. There is no way to download or upload the private part of a key by design.

However you can create a new own key. You may want to consider to sign the public key with your own existing key.

If a project has no key, the key from upper level project will be used (eg. when dropping "KDE:KDE4:Community" key, the one from "KDE:KDE4" will be used).

WARNING: THE OLD KEY WILL NOT BE RESTORABLE WHEN USING DELETE OR CREATE
