Adding a new package to Ceph

Follow these directions if you have a new package to introduce for Ceph.

Determine Ceph release

Determine which distribution of Ceph will contain your package. For example: "nautilus". Generally you want the latest version of Ceph here.

Make a SRPM for your package

This requires writing a spec file and documenting how to build the SRPM. Ideally the spec file lives in your upstream project, or if the package is a rebuild from Fedora, you can use the .src.rpm file from Fedora.

Test building the SRPM in mock

mock -r storage7-ceph-nautilus-el7-x86_64 yourpackage-1.0-1.el7.src.rpm

See the full Using Mock documentation for details.

Scratch-build the package in CBS

Please install the CBS client (CLI) on your workstation. You will need it to build new RPMs and manage builds.

Once your CBS account is authorized, you can scratch build your SRPM like so:

cbs build storage7-ceph-nautilus-el7 --scratch yourpackage-1.0-1.el7.src.rpm

Update Ansible with your package

We manage CBS tags with koji-ansible. Update the cbs-nautilus.yml playbook with your new package.

Build the package in CBS

cbs build storage7-ceph-nautilus-el7 yourpackage-1.0-1.el7.src.rpm

Promote package in CBS

See the "promote-build" script in

The first time will tag the build into -testing:

./bin/promote-build yourpackage-1.0-1.el7

The second time will tag it into -release:

./bin/promote-build yourpackage-1.0-1.el7
