Working with Centos sources

Clone their helper repo first:

git clone  https://git.centos.org/git/centos-git-common.git

Go to their RPM project and select a project to clone. I’m picking coreutils here. This repo has a SPEC file and the patches to the original source.

git clone https://git.centos.org/r/rpms/coreutils.git

The master branch is always empty. Checkout their c7 branch to see the SPECS and SOURCES folders for Centos 7, and run the helper script to fetch the source.

git checkout c7
../centos-git-common/get_sources.sh
