you can retrigger per repo/arch already:

curl -d " " -n \

-n == netrc or use:
-u/--user <user[:password]> Set server user and password

repo and arch are optional.

so those 3 are valid:



if you upload a spec file it will directly build on all build targets
anyway. if you change files you do not need to press trigger rebuild.

if you want to test if a change is really fixing your problem e.g. on
fedora than use osc build.


$ osc build Fedora_Extras_5 i586 *spec

will fetch all needed fedora rpms into the local package cache and than
build locally in a chroot. just as it would do it on the build service.
I am not forcing you to do so... but it would definitely cut down the
round trip time for you.

running "osc build" once without arguments will add the needed settings
to your $HOME/.oscrc and you can customize them.

so while we are at it: osc 0.8 supports a neat feature for the
build-root setting.

the default for build-root is '/var/tmp/build-root'.
you now can set it to '/var/tmp/build-root-%(repo)s' and with the
cmdline from the example it will build in

you can also make it: '/var/tmp/build-root-%(repo)s-%(arch)s'
and will get '/var/tmp/build-root-Fedora_Extras_5-i586'

hope this helps
