Screencasts on Fedora Packager for Eclipse: Vol 1, Fedora RPM Projects

I’m going to do a series of screencasts on Fedora Packager for Eclipse (v0.2 and later). The first one is on “Fedora RPM projects” which makes it easy for you to come up with a .spec file and SRPM from scratch, based on another SRPM – e.g. from a different distro – or feature.xml or pom.xml (Python eggs and Ruby gems would be also cool to support). Once you have a .spec file and an SRPM, you can upload them somewhere and get them reviewed via the usual process. Without further ado, here it is (OGV format):

Fedora Packager for Eclipse 0.3 will have a conversion tool to migrate “Fedora RPM projects” to “Fedora Git” projects (these are projects which you can import via CTRL+ALT+F I) It’s also planned to provide an easy way to upload a “Fedora RPM project” for review. Anyhow, so far the first screencast šŸ™‚

What do you think? Is there a feature you are missing desperately? Let us know. Happy packaging! šŸ˜‰

  1. Very informative and quite helpful. I just started packaging some things for Fedora and was looking around for tips, and this is even more than I knew to look for! I had no idea Eclipse could be used for packaging RPMs — very cool!

    I look forward to more.

  2. I meant to comment on this a while ago but great work, Severin! To broaden the potential audience, it might be nice to split things up into small (< 1 or 2 minutes) chunks showing just one bit of functionality at a time. We could even number them and have them be a progression. Regardless, though, this is excellent work!
