This recipe worked like a charm, but now we are seeing again the same issue, openstack-macros is no longer available in ussuri nor in train

Could you please tell me what happened?

Hi Cloud SIG,

With every OpenStack release (and also with CentOS 8), we have to rebuild some OpenStack packages to be installed at CERN.

Those packages carry downstream patches for integration into our environment. While building those, we have

observed that there are some packages that are required to build but are not provided in the testing repositories.

In the past, there was a build repository in which those dependencies were available. If I recall correctly from a previous

discussion, this is no longer available due to several reasons.

Would it be possible to have the dependencies available in the testing repo at least to build the main OpenStack components?

If this is not possible, what would be your suggestion to help us out?

Since some releases ago, we tag and ship in -testing and -release repositories only runtime dependencies. There are some packages which are only required to build packages which are tagged in -el8-build tag to be available during building in CBS and are also shipped in build-deps repository in RDO Trunk server, i.e.:


I'd propose you to use or mirror that repository or you can find the list of packages and download them from CBS in rdoinfo data file for the specific tag:


I hope this helps, let me know if you need further assistance.

Best regards,


Kind regards,
