we are currently pushing out osc version 0.116. Beside some eagerly wanted
bugfixes it provides some new commands to handle version source links more

Source links can point to a certain revision of source package. This is not
the default, because the usual use case when you prepare submissions for other
projects should show new upcoming conflicts.

However in other use cases you might want to control when to upgrade to a
newer revision. This is esp. the case when you use the OBS for release

Here are some examples how to use it:

Create a new source link with the new --current argument:

# osc linkpac --current openSUSE:Factory osc openSUSE:Tools

This means that osc checks now what is the current revision in Factory and
refers to exactly this version (you see a rev="X" attribute in the _link
file). The effect is that a change in openSUSE:Factory has no effect in

At some later point of time you might want to update to the current version
again. The easiest way to do this is to use the new "setlinkrev" command.
You can do this either via

osc co openSUSE:Tools osc
cd openSUSE:Tools/osc
osc setlinkrev

or call directly

osc setlinkrev openSUSE:Tools osc
