Looking to pull the source code from Fedora to a Ubuntu system and discovered I need to run fedpkg to get the latest source. However I have no idea how to do this on my Ubuntu 10.04 system. Short of spinning up a Fedora instance and then copying across does anyone have and idea on how to solve this issue?
It would appear that installing fedpkg would the obvious but possibly incorrect solution.
The reason for wanting the source is to run analysis over it, not to build anything from it or run anything. Specifically I am trying to pull the entire source tree. The reason for wanting the source via GIT/fedpkg is that I can be sure to get the latest and update it fairly easily without resorting to a ISO download extract.
I should mention I am probably going to end up doing this though a virtual machine as it seems less hack, but that there was not even a CLUE on how to do this via any search terms I threw into Google/Bing. It must be possible to bring the package manager across, I just have no idea how to do it or even if its a good idea.
