BIRD upstream packaging sources

This distro/ directory contains packaging sources initially copied from Debian and Fedora downstream repos.

Files in this directory follow apkg conventions and apkg can be used to create BIRD packages for various distros directly from upstream sources as well as from upstream archives.

Create (source) package from current repo commit

Following command should build source package for current distro directly from current repo state - run at top bird directory:

apkg srcpkg

or build native packages directly:

apkg build

or in case of disposable VM/container you can use faster direct host build

apkg build -Hi

tools/make-dev-archive script is in charge of creating archive from source.

Create (source) package from upstream release

Following commands can be used to clone upstream repo, download current upstream archive (tarball), and build Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, or OpenSUSE source package (depending on host system) using files in bird/distro:

git clone
cd bird
apkg get-archive
apkg srcpkg -a pkg/archives/upstream/bird-2.0.8.tar.gz

To create native packages instead use build:

apkg build -a pkg/archives/upstream/bird-2.0.8.tar.gz

Or to build packages directly in case of a disposable VM/container (faster, modifies system):

apkg build -Hi -a pkg/archives/upstream/bird-2.0.8.tar.gz

Build packages in openSUSE Build Service (OBS)

tools/make-obs script can be used on Debian-based system to create OBS source package in pkg/obs directory ready to be uploaded:

cd bird
apkg get-archive
# result in pkg/obs

You can also supply (upstream) archive to build from:

# or to use specified archive
./tools/make-obs pkg/archives/upstream/bird-2.0.8.tar.gz
