Cannot fork & edit incorrect spec fileo n src.fedora

Following up from @ankursinha’s response at Upstream Release Monitoring / bugzilla reports error - #4 by ankursinha, I wonder how to specifically fork & edit a spec file.

I currently want to offer a correction to https://src.fedoraproject.org/fork_edit/rpms/gwenhywfar/edit/rawhide/f/gwenhywfar.spec but I only get an


Fatal Error (500)

A fatal error has occurred, we're sorry :(

This is the documentation on making PRs to packages if you’re not a package maintainer:

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/package-maintainers/Joining_the_Package_Maintainers/#one_off_contributions

They should work, but please let us know if they don’t.

Thanks a lot, I understand I should fork the project on pagure to begin with. But I cannot find gwenhywfar as a project there via browsing.

[Edit 18 Dec 21: I have by now recognised that the package sits is on http://src.fedoraproject.org/]

The package are available on https://src.fedoraproject.org/browse/projects/. Search there.

Here the link Overview - rpms/gnucash - src.fedoraproject.org.

Make sure you’re already login, then fork and then edit it.

thanks a lot,

well, several times I got, even though I was always logged in, this feedback:

But suddenly, after several attempts, I got a fork…
I have no idea what happened in between.

Still, when I visit
https://src.fedoraproject.org/fork/ingli/rpms/gwenhywfar

I still get the Fatal Error.

And on ingli - overview - src.fedoraproject.org I have now two forks listed, neither of which I can access.

When I am logged in, I get the Fatal Error for Tree - rpms/gwenhywfar - src.fedoraproject.org

But when I am logged out, I can see the file.

You may want to file a ticket with infrastructure

I was able to fork it. Maybe something with your account or something happened during the initial fork.

Thanks for contributing!

Thank you, filed a ticket at Issue #10429: issue with forking on src.fedoraproject/cannot edit fork - fedora-infrastructure - Pagure.io

If this is a Fedora package, it’ll be on src.fedoraproject.org, which is different from pagure.io.
