Tools for package automation

fedpkg interacts with only one package, whereas the reality is many maintainers work with multiple RPMs, often with inter-build dependencies, from potentially multiple source code locations.

This page is attempting to gather together lists of scripts and tools which edit spec files programmatically and are either layered on top of fedpkg/koji/copr, or act as a more agile bypass.

Hopefully, you will find one of these tools useful. However, the author of this page has as a real motivation arguing that the underlying infrastructure should support some of this directly.


Probably the most advanced layered tool; spec file changelog generation, interaction with koji.


A tool that helps build a series of packages from upstream git; can be run locally as a developer tool, or as an unattended continuous delivery mechanism.


Project is the same as rpmdistro-gitoverlay, but has different code base, python 3 support, building in COPR, documentation and tests.

Unfortunately it is python 3.5+ only. Also currently it supports building RPMs only through COPR when rpmdistro-gitoverlay supports building only through mock.



A project which intends to help package maintainers in Fedora with rebasing their packages.

rdopkg And the newer

Used by Red Hat/OpenStack:


For golang:


Interacts with upstream git + Bugzilla, generates spec file data.
