Mock » Release Notes 1.4.9

A 'simple' chroot build environment manager for building RPMs.

Released on 2018-02-12.


In this release, there are several fixes to bootstrap feature. This is especially important for users who run Mock on EL7. Rich dependencies are now allowed in Fedora and maintainers are starting to use them. So sooner or later, you will be unable to build packages for Fedoras on EL7 host. Unless you start using bootstrap feature (--bootstrap-chroot), which is still by default off.


# Set timeout in seconds for common mock operations
# if 0 is set, then no time limit is used
# config_opts['opstimeout'] = 0

The default is 0, which means that Mock is waiting until command exit.


Additionally, there are several major changes in mock-core-config. This package is independent now, and a new version has been released two weeks ago and will be pushed to Fedora stable next week. I will repeat here changes in that package:
