CEKit 3.1.0 released

      2 min read       

After 3.0.0 release we decided make our release cycle faster. We’re not afraid of new version numbers, you shouldn’t be too 😏

From now on you can expect new minor releases come out faster. These will be less feature-packed but on other hand this will let us shorten the time between a bug/feature report and the release containing the fix.

Above introduction would be meaningless without a release, so here it is!

3.1.0 is out!

CEKit 3.1.0 was just released!

It contains a few bug fixes for issues reported by users as well as some internal changes to the tool that should make it more stable and smarter.

You can read the full changelog on GitHub.

Besides this, we added support for supplementary dist-git items which is discussed below.

Supplementary dist-git files

Some teams requested the ability to make it possible to maintain upstream set of files that should be then synced with dist-git repository. There were some iteration on the proposed design, but we finalized on following one.

If an osbs_extra directory will be found next to the image descriptor, then the contents of that directory will be copied into the root of the dist-git repository.

The directory name where to look for files can be controlled in the image descriptor in the osbs section:

    extra_dir: custom-files

⚠️ Please be aware that files in dist-git will be overridden by the files from the supplementary files directory.


This release is immediately available on PyPI. Packages were built for Fedora and EPEL too.

Latest packages submitted for particular Fedora or EPEL versions can be found always in Bodhi. Besides this you can always see latest CEKit builds in Koji.
