GSoC 2012: On-Demand Fedora Build Service: Update #3

by Amit


I have pushed a working snapshot of the image building code to github[1]. Here is a sample run of the code:

$ sudo python imagebuild.py -t boot -a i386 -o image_op1 -w image_work -p fedora -r 17 -v 1 -nvr 'anaconda-17.26-1.fc17' -bid '318281' '311809'

This command line spawns the build process of a Fedora 17 boot.iso with a number of extra packages (specified via their NVR or build IDs):

$ sudo python imagebuild.py -t boot -a i386 -o image_op1 -w image_work -p fedora -r 17 -v 1 -nvr 'anaconda-17.26-1.fc17' -bid '318281' '311809'

Finally, a boot.iso is created. Next, I plan to inegrate package retrieval from Koji via other methods. And then, support for creating Live images and DVD images. And then, the REST API/Web based service.

Some of the scripts I was experimenting with to pull packages are here [2].
