rebuildctl - Manage and query a rebuilderd(1)

rebuildctl [-vH https://rebuilder.example.com] [-c /etc/rebuilderd.conf] <command>

The rebuildctl binary is used to query and manage rebuilderd instances. Functionality is split into multiple subcommands.

Lists the available workers and what they are currently working on.

--color

Force colors even if stdout is not a tty. This is useful with watch -c.

rebuildctl status

List the packages known to rebuilderd along with their status.

--color

Force colors even if stdout is not a tty. This is useful with watch -c.

--json

Print the response as json instead of pretty-printing it.

--distro <distro>

Select packages from a specific distro, like archlinux or debian.

--suite <suite>

Select packages from a specific suite/repository, like main, contrib, non-free or core, extra and community.

--architecture <architecture>

Select packages with a specific architecture.

--name <name>

Select packages with a specific name.

--status <status>

Select packages with a specific status. Possible values are GOOD, BAD, and UNKWN.

rebuildctl pkgs ls --status GOOD

Sync a set of packages into rebuilderd and automatically queue them for verification. For an in-depth description of how the filters work you can look into rebuilderd-sync.conf(5).

--architecture <architecture>

The architecture that should be imported (if needed). This option can be specified multiple times. The specific values are distro specific, like x86_64 for Arch Linux or amd64 for debian.

--release <release>

The releases that should be imported (if needed). This option can be specified multiple times.

--print-json

Do a dry-run and only show what we would sync instead of actually sending it to rebuilderd.

--maintainer <maintainers>

Only pick packages by specific maintainers.

--pkg <pattern>

Only pick specific packages or packages matching a pattern.

--exclude <pattern>

Always ignore packages that match this pattern, even if it also matches one of the other filters.

rebuildctl pkgs sync archlinux community --architecture x86_64 \
'https://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch' \
--maintainer kpcyrd --print-json

This command is very similar to pkgs sync, but reads all the options from a configuration file instead. These profiles are also used by the systemd timer.

--color

Force colors even if stdout is not a tty. This is useful with watch -c.

--print-json

Do a dry-run and only show what we would sync instead of actually sending it to rebuilderd.

--sync-config /etc/rebuilderd-sync.conf

The configuration file to read profiles from.

rebuildctl pkgs sync-profile archlinux-core

List the current queue.

--color

Force colors even if stdout is not a tty. This is useful with watch -c.

--head

Only show the first 25 items in the queue.

--json

Print the response as json instead of pretty-printing it.

rebuildctl queue ls --head

Push a specific package to the work queue again. If the version is not provided we automaticlly select the current one.

--architecture

You can optionally filter by architecture. Otherwise all matches are added to the queue.

rebuildctl queue push archlinux community rebuilderd

Drop a specific package from the work queue. Optionally select a specific version to drop.

rebuildctl queue drop archlinux community rebuilderd

rebuilderd(1), rebuilderd.conf(5), rebuilderd-sync.conf(5).
