Using LCFG Build Tools with Git

Ensure you have the latest package versions installed

!profile.packages mEXTRA(?perl-LCFG-Build-VCS-0.4.2-1/noarch ?perl-LCFG-Build-Tools-0.12.0-1/noarch)

Install git2cl from EPEL, e.g.

!profile.packages mEXTRA(git2cl-2.0-0.8.git8373c9f.el7.noarch.rpm)

svn2git can be used to migrate from Subversion to Git, retaining tags and mapping user identities to email addresses. We installed this manually rather than from an RPM.

Start the SSH agent and add my private key:

-bash-4.2$ eval `ssh-agent`
Agent pid 29967
-bash-4.2$ ssh-add 
Enter passphrase for /localdisk/home/kenny/.ssh/id_rsa: 
Identity added: /localdisk/home/kenny/.ssh/id_rsa (/localdisk/home/kenny/.ssh/id_rsa)

Set my email address for Git to use in commits:

git config --global user.email Kenneth.MacDonald@ed.ac.uk

Clone the remote Git repo, in this case we are cloning the Wake On LAN source code (was at version 7.0.2)

-bash-4.2$ git clone git@git.ecdf.ed.ac.uk:enterprise_services/wake-on-lan.git

Now make a small change, in this example we will rename the README file to README.md, remembering to fix the RPM specfile as well.

-bash-4.2$ cd wake-on-lan/
-bash-4.2$ ls
ChangeLog       labmon    lib    README        specfile
CMakeLists.txt  lcfg.yml  mywol  README.BUILD
-bash-4.2$ git mv README README.md
-bash-4.2$ vi specfile 
-bash-4.2$ git status
# On branch master
# Changes to be committed:
#   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
#   renamed:    README -> README.md
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#   modified:   specfile

Commit the change to the local git repo:

-bash-4.2$ git commit -a -m "Rename README to README.md"
[master ec382d9] Rename README to README.md
 2 files changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-)
 rename README => README.md (100%)

Make a micro release as usual:

-bash-4.2$ lcfg-reltool micro
