The grafana package

Upgrade instructions

(replace X.Y.Z and R with the new Grafana version)

  • update Version, Release and %changelog in the specfile
  • create bundles and manifest: VER=X.Y.Z REL=R make clean all
  • update specfile with contents of the .manifest file
  • check if the default configuration has changed: diff grafana-X.Y.Z/conf/defaults.ini distro-defaults.ini and update distro-defaults.ini if necessary
  • update the manpages patch in 002-manpages.patch and other patches if required
  • run local build: rpkg local
  • run rpm linter: rpkg lint -r grafana.rpmlintrc
  • run local builds with different OS versions: ./ fedora-version
  • run a scratch build: fedpkg scratch-build --srpm
  • upload new source tarballs: fedpkg new-sources *.tar.gz *.tar.xz


  • create the patch
  • declare and apply (%prep) the patch in the specfile
  • if the patch affects Go or Node.js dependencies, or the webpack
  • create new tarballs and rename them to grafana-...-X.Y.Z-R.tar.gz
  • update the specfile with new tarball path and contents of the .manifest file

Note: the Makefile automatically applies all patches before creating the tarballs
