MockBuildSRPM Step

The MockBuildSRPM step builds a SourceRPM based on a spec file and optionally a source directory:

Mock (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Projects/Mock) creates chroots and builds packages in them. It populates the changeroot with a basic system and the packages listed as build requirement. The type of chroot to build is specified with the root parameter. To use mock your Buildbot user must be added to the mock group.

from buildbot.plugins import steps

f.addStep(steps.MockBuildSRPM(root='default', spec='mypkg.spec'))

The step takes the following parameters


Use chroot configuration defined in /etc/mock/<root>.cfg.


The directory where the logfiles and the SourceRPM are written to.


Build the SourceRPM from this spec file.


Path to the directory containing the sources, defaulting to ..


It is necessary to pass the resultdir parameter to let the master watch for (and display) changes to build.log, root.log, and state.log.
