Updating RPM packages to new upstream versions can be a time-consuming task for package maintainers. There are several steps that need to be done each time a package is being rebased. rebase-helper aims to automate most of these steps, though some actions require user interaction. Aside from just updating the package to a new version, rebase-helper also runs a series of checks and warns the user if there are any suspicious results that could cause issues in the package.

The presentation will showcase how a significant part of package maintainer's work can be automated. The presentation will cover the usage of rebase-helper, its workflow and the most important command line options. The major part of the presentation will be in the form of practical real-world examples.

Attendees should be familiar with the basics of RPM packaging.
