[CentOS-devel] [NFV SIG][CBS]Understanding a bit more the NFV SIG builds and repos

Hi all,

I finally put some time aside to move forward with building RPMs for DPDK 
2.0 for the CentOS NFV SIG.

In particular, I used pretty much the same spec file from Red Hat (made 
sure the RPM release matches what CBS expects for release) and I created 
package dpdk-2.0.0-1.el7.centos with buildID 1476.

I am guessing I really should have built dpdk-2.0.0-8.el7.centos as I have 
kept all the changelog intact which goes up to number 8, and also keep it 
in sync with the Red Hat version? Any comments on that?

Then my next question is that I noticed that following my successful 
build, kojira created task 16722 in order to create a new repo, which 
makes sense. According to that, since my RPM has tag 
nfv7-common-el7-build the dpdk rpm should apear on centos7-updates 
external repo, right? Following to this (and if I am right so far) 
shouldn't there be a specific repo for NFV SIG instead of centos7-updates 
which is a standard external repo?

I have some more questions, but I will pause here if someone could shed 
some lights, that would be great.
