NAME

Documentation for pb configuration files

DESCRIPTION

pb helps you build various packages directly from your project sources. In order to work correctly, it relies on a certain number of configuration files. Most of these configuration parameters can be setup in all the configuration files, however, they generally make more sense in a specific one, which is indicated. There are mainly 4 configuration files, the one in the home directory of the user (used first), the one from the project (use in second), the one in the VM/VE hosting directory, and the one provided by the tool in /etc/pb or /usr/local/etc/pb (lastly).

SYNOPSIS

Those files have the same format, which is YAML starting after v0.14 of pb.

keyword: key: value1[,value2,...]

(Before it was using: keyword key = value1[,value2,...])

The key could be also default, in which case it will be used as a default value if no more precise content is given for the key.

Each value is detailed below giving the nature of its use (Mandatory or Optional - only used for certain feature), the value of the key (could be the project, an OS name, default, ...), the value of the parameter field and its format, the default configuration file in which it should be defined (home $HOME/.pbrc.yml, conf /etc/pb/pb.yml or /usr/local/etc/pb/pb.yml, VE vepath/.pbrc.yml, VM vmpath/.pbrc.yml, or project project.yml) and an example of use.

OTHER PARAMETERS

pb URLs
 The pbprojurl and pbconfurl parameters support multiple schemas to point to the repositories to use.
 They are parsed by project-builder.org to communicate with them. 

 The protocols can be git, git+svn, svk, svn, cvs, hg. 
 If you have write access to the repository, you'll generally use an ssh access which will be noted by a +ssh at the end of the protocol used. If you don't you may use a +http(s) e.g. to access the repository. 

 Examples:

 pbprojurl: 
   fossology: git+https://github.com/fossology/fossology.git
   linuxcoe: cvs+ssh://:ext:bcornec@linuxcoe.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/linuxcoe
   pb: svn+ssh://svn.mondorescue.org/prj/svn/pb

 => You access the upstream FOSSology project in read mode (by https) and the project uses git as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build.
 => You access the upstream LinuxCOE project in write mode (by ssh) and the project uses CVS as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build.
 => For Project-builder.org itself, you access the upstream LinuxCOE project in write mode (by ssh) and the project uses CVS as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build.
 => You access the upstream project-builder.org project in write mode (by ssh) and the project uses subversion as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build.

 If you use instead:
   pb: git+svn+ssh://svn.mondorescue.org/prj/svn/pb

 => You access the upstream project-builder.org project in write mode (by ssh) and the project uses subversion as a VCS, and you use git svn to manage locally the software with git, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build.


 In some cases, there is no repository and the files are hosted remotely, in which case you can use an http(s) or ftp protocol

 Examples:

 pbprojurl: 
   afio: ftp://localhost/src/afio-2.5.tar.gz

 => You access the project in read mode as a tar compressed file format using ftp to have access to it and that will also be used by project-builder.org to build.
pb Directories
 In order to use project-builder.org to build packages for a project, you need to declare certain directories in your configuration file, and two URLS, as defined in the previous paragraph, linked to them.

 Tree will look like this:

             maint pbdefdir                         PBDEFDIR            dev dir (optional)

 (*) By default, if no relocation in .pbrc.yml, dev dir is taken in the maint pbdefdir (when appropriate)
 Names under a pbproj and the corresponding pbconf should be similar


 The first couple to declare is the pbconfurl and pbconfdir. They declare the location of the repository containing project-builder.org configuration files and the local directory in which they are checked out. They do not need to be hosted in the upstream repository and can be managed completely separately. If pbconfdir is not defined, by default it will be taken as the concatention of pbdefdir and the project name. If that's not the case in your setup, then specify the pbconfdir value

 Examples:

 pbconfurl: 
  python-redfish: git+ssh://git@github.com:bcornec/python-redfish.git
  fossology: git+https://github.com/fossology/fossology.git
  uuwl: git+svn+ssh://svn.mondorescue.org/prj/svn/pb/projects/uuwl/pbconf
  pb: git+svn+ssh://svn.mondorescue.org/prj/svn/pb/pbconf
  afio: git+svn+ssh://svn.project-builder.org/prj/svn/pb/projects/afio/pbconf
  linuxcoe: cvs+ssh://:ext:bcornec@linuxcoe.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/linuxcoe/pbconf

 pbconfdir:
  python-redfish: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj/python-redfish/pbconf
  fossology: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj/fossology/git/pbconf
  uuwl: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git/pb/projects/uuwl/pbconf

 pbdefdir:
  default: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git/pb/projects
  python-redfish: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj
  fossology: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj/fossology
  uuwl: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git
  pb: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git

 => You access the project-builder.org configuration files for python-redfish in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using git as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build packages. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the git repository from the pbconfurl URL into the pbconfdir directory, expanding the HOME directory on the fly. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch. The pbdefdir will be used for other parameters, but the pbconfdir value takes precedence (in this case both variable mean the same local location anyway). Here the upstream python-redfish project is hosting the pbconf info directly.
 => You access the project-builder.org configuration files for FOSSology in read-only mode (by https) and this project is using git as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to build packages. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the git repository from the pbconfurl URL into the pbconfdir directory, expanding the HOME directory on the fly. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch. The pbdefdir will be used for other parameters, but the pbconfdir value takes precedence (in this case both variable mean the same local location anyway). Here the upstream python-redfish project is hosting the pbconf info directly.
 => You access the project-builder.org configuration files for UUWL in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using SVN as a VCS to manage the repo and git svn will be used by project-builder.org to build packages. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the SVN repository from the pbconfurl URL into the pbconfdir directory, expanding the HOME directory on the fly. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch. The pbdefdir will be used for other parameters, but the pbconfdir value takes precedence (in this case variables point to different locations). Here the upstream UUWL project is not hosting the pbconf info directly, which is managed in the upstream SVN project-builder.org repository.
 => You access the project-builder.org configuration files for project-builder.org in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using SVN as a VCS to manage the repo and git svn will be used by project-builder.org to build packages. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the SVN repository from the pbconfurl URL into a directory whose name is the concatenation of the pb pbdefdir path and then the project name (pb value setup with the -p option see below, here pb), expanding the HOME directory on the fly, as there is no pbconfdir value setup for this project. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch. Here the upstream project-builder.org project is hosting the pbconf info directly.
 => You access the project-builder.org configuration files for afio in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using SVN as a VCS to manage the repo and git svn will be used by project-builder.org to build packages. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the SVN repository from the pbconfurl URL into a directory whose name is the concatenation of the default pbdefdir path and then the project name (pb value setup with the -p option see below, here afio), expanding the HOME directory on the fly, as there is no pbconfdir value setup for this project, and no value for this project for the pbdefdir parameter, only the default one. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch. Here the upstream afio project is not hosting the pbconf info directly, which is managed in the upstream SVN project-builder.org repository.
 => You access the project-builder.org configuration files for LinuxCOE in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using CVS as a VCS, that will be used by project-builder.org to build packages. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the CVS repository from the pbconfurl URL into a directory whose name is the concatenation of the default pbdefdir path and then the project name (pb value setup with the -p option see below, here linuxcoe), expanding the HOME directory on the fly, as there is no pbconfdir value setup for this project, and no value for this project for the pbdefdir parameter, only the default one. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch. Here the upstream LinuxCOE project is hosting the pbconf info directly.

 Note that ultimately, if pbdefdir is not defined, project-builder.org will use /var/cache by default, which may fail if you do not have appropriate write rights.

 The second couple to declare is the pbprojurl and pbprojdir. Similarly, they declare the location of the repository containing the upstream project files and the local directory in which they are checked out. If pbprojdir is not defined, by default it will be taken as the concatention of pbdefdir and the project name. If that's not the case in your setup, then specify the pbprojdir value

 Examples:

 pbprojurl: 
  python-redfish: git+ssh://git@github.com:bcornec/python-redfish.git
  fossology: git+ssh://git@github.com:fossology/fossology.git
  uuwl: git+svn+ssh://svn.mondorescue.org/prj/svn/uuwl
  pb: git+svn+ssh://svn.mondorescue.org/prj/svn/pb
  afio: ftp://localhost/src/afio-2.5.tar.gz
  linuxcoe: cvs+ssh://:ext:bcornec@linuxcoe.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/linuxcoe

 pbprojdir:
  fossology: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj/fossology/git
  pb: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git/pb
  linuxcoe: $ENV{'HOME'}/LinuxCOE/cvs

 pbdefdir:
  default: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git/pb/projects
  python-redfish: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj
  fossology: $ENV{'HOME'}/Work/bruno/prj/fossology
  uuwl: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git
  pb: $ENV{'HOME'}/svn-git

 => You access the upstream files for python-redfish in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using git as a VCS, that will also be used by project-builder.org to manage the sources. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the git repository from the pbprojurl URL into a directory whose name is the concatenation of the python-redfish pbdefdir path and then the project name (pb value setup with the -p option see below, here python-redfish), expanding the HOME directory on the fly, as there is no pbprojdir value setup for this project.

The first time, project-builder.org will clone the git repository from the pbprojurl URL into a directory whose name is the concatenation of the uuwl pbdefdir path and then the project name (pb value setup with the -p option see below, here uuwl), expanding the HOME directory on the fly, as there is no pbprojdir value setup for this project. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch.
 => You access the upstream files for project-builder.org in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using SVN as a VCS to manage the repo and git svn will be used by project-builder.org to manage the sources. The first time, project-builder.org will clone the git repository from the pbprojurl URL into the pbprojdir directory, expanding the HOME directory on the fly. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch.
 => You access the upstream files for afio in read-only mode and this project, which isn't developed anymore upstream, is just providing a compressed tar file using FTP as a VCS and it will be used by project-builder.org to manage the sources. The first time, project-builder.org will extract the sources from the tar file pointed to by the pbprojurl URL into a directory whose name is the concatenation of the default pbdefdir path, as there is no afio entry for this parameter, and then the project name (pb value setup with the -p option see below, here afio), expanding the HOME directory on the fly, as there is no pbprojdir value setup for this project.
 => You access the upstream files for LinuxCOE in write mode (by ssh) and this project is using CVS as a VCS to manage the repo and it will be used by project-builder.org to manage the sources. The first time, project-builder.org will export the CVS repository from the pbprojurl URL into the pbprojdir directory, expanding the HOME directory on the fly. If the project is already cloned there it will just use it, with the current branch.
