New Repo failed with "The Pagure project already exists"

I’m very new to Fedora packaging.

When I requested a repo for a new project I’m submitting called “make-it-quick", I got the following response: “The Pagure project already exists” (see <a href="" title=""></a>). The sources at <a href="" title=""></a> are owned by limb, and I’m not a member of the project. As a result, my `fedpkg push` commands are rejected.

Is it because I had created a project with the same name using the web interface (<a href="" title=""></a>) ?

Self-introduction: Christophe de Dinechin


My name is Christophe de Dinechin, and I’m writing this introduction per the recommendation here: <a href="" title=""></a>.

I’m interested in becoming the Fedora maintainer for several projects I created, in order:

1. make-it-quick (<a href="" title=""></a>), autoconfiguration using make. Copr builds here: <a href="" title=""></a>. I filed <a href="" title=""></a> for review.


Packaging .c files in a non-devel package


I’m currently working on a Fedora package for make-it-quick (<a href="" title=""></a>), a make-only build system with basic auto-configuration.

rpmlint complains about shipping .c files in a non -devel package. The package does contains several small .c files that are used for autoconfiguration.

One option would be to rename the package as “make-it-quick-devel”, but that seems a bit redundant given that the whole point of the package is to be a development tool.

Another option would be to rename the files to use some custom extension for configuration sources.
