DNF repodiff Plugin

Display a list of differences between two or more repositories

Synopsis

dnf repodiff [<options>]

Description

repodiff is a program which will list differences between two sets of repositories. Note that by default only source packages are compared.

Options

--repo-old=<repoid>, -o <repoid>
Add a <repoid> as an old repository. It is possible to be used in conjunction with --repofrompath option. Can be specified multiple times.
--repo-new=<repoid>, -n <repoid>
Add a <repoid> as a new repository. Can be specified multiple times.
--archlist=<arch>, -a <arch>
Add architectures to change the default from just comparing source packages. Note that you can use a wildcard “*” for all architectures. Can be specified multiple times.
--size, -s
Output additional data about the size of the changes.
--compare-arch
Normally packages are just compared based on their name, this flag makes the comparison also use the arch. So foo.noarch and foo.x86_64 are considered to be a different packages.
--simple
Output a simple one line message for modified packages.
--downgrade
Split the data for modified packages between upgraded and downgraded packages.

Examples

Compare source pkgs in two local repos:

dnf repodiff --repofrompath=o,/tmp/repo-old --repofrompath=n,/tmp/repo-new --repo-old=o --repo-new=n

Compare x86_64 compat. binary pkgs in two remote repos, and two local one:

dnf repodiff --repofrompath=o,http://example.com/repo-old --repofrompath=n,http://example.com/repo-new --repo-old=o --repo-new=n --archlist=x86_64

Compare x86_64 compat. binary pkgs, but also compare architecture:

dnf repodiff --repofrompath=o,http://example.com/repo-old --repofrompath=n,http://example.com/repo-new --repo-old=o --repo-new=n --archlist=x86_64 --compare-arch
