You may have also heard about this project as "Fedora Packaging Service", which is really just a working title. Packit is the name of the upstream project and we are trying to figure out the proper name using the Fedora brand.
Packit stands for multiple things:
- Packaging automation: get latest bits into Fedora rawhide with minimum amount of manual steps
- Upstream integration: let upstream know how their project stands in Fedora
- Reusing existing services: we don't want to reinvent the wheel: we'll use existing tools and integrate with present services and only write new code if we need to
- Be opt-in: you don't need to use it and you can opt out any time you want
Spec files in upstream repos? Are you out of your mind?
What about the-new-hotness?
Are you trying to take away my package(s) from me?
