Readme for fedora-repoquery-0.7

[back to package description]


A dnf wrapper to repoquery different Fedora releases, caching repodata separately per release. It also supports EPEL and Centos Stream repos.


Usage examples:

$ fedora-repoquery rawhide firefox

firefox-128.0-2.fc41.x86_64 (fedora-rawhide)

$ fedora-repoquery 40 --requires filesystem


$ fedora-repoquery epel9 ghc

ghc-8.10.7-116.el9.x86_64 (epel9)

$ fedora-repoquery c10 bash

bash-5.2.26-4.el10.x86_64 (c10s-BaseOS)

$ fedora-repoquery eln kernel

kernel-6.11.0-0.rc0.20240716gitd67978318827.2.eln141.x86_64 (eln-BaseOS)

Without a release argument, the system yum repo configuration is used:

$ fedora-repoquery pandoc

pandoc-3.1.3-29.fc41.x86_64 (rawhide)

Use the --time (-T) option to display repo timestamps:

$ fedora-repoquery -T 41 fedrq
2024-07-16 19:45:44 +08 <https://mirror.freedif.org/fedora/fedora/linux/development/rawhide>

fedrq-1.1.0-3.fc41.noarch (fedora-rawhide)

Repo timestamp(s) are output when there are no query args after the release version:

$ fedora-repoquery 40

2024-04-20 02:22:34 +08 <https://mirror.freedif.org/fedora/fedora/linux/releases/40/>
2024-07-18 12:15:13 +08 <https://mirror.freedif.org/fedora/fedora/linux/updates/40/>

One can also query multiple releases (or arch's): $ fedora-repoquery 40 41 python3 | grep x86_64

python3-3.12.2-2.fc40.x86_64 (f40)
python3-3.12.4-1.fc40.x86_64 (f40-updates)
python3-3.13.0~b3-2.fc41.x86_64 (fedora-rawhide)
