We’ve released launchpad-buildd 143 and deployed it to production. This makes a few changes relevant to snap building:
- Launchpad now records the revision of the top-level branch used to build a snap; you’ll find it on the web UI for each snap build, or in the
revision_idattribute of a snap_build in the webservice API. This is intended to make it easier to group related builds, especially for services such as build.snapcraft.io.
- Snap builds can now access external Git repositories using the
git://protocol, which is useful for repositories that don’t support HTTP/HTTPS or for cases where
git://is already hardcoded in build scripts or submodules.
