The following are a set of documented interactions possible between Pagure Dist Git and Toddlers.

Git module

  • Some of the toddlers are doing cloning and various interactions with git, all of those interactions are in git module

Pagure module

  • This module contains method interacting with pagure or dist-git

  • Few methods are specific only for dist-git:

    • set_monitoring_status

    • is_project_orphaned

Changes proposed

In order to switch out Pagure Dist Git for an alternative that provides a relatively compatible API pattern, the following changes must be made in the places mentioned below.


  • The configuration needs to be changed for dist-git to point to new URL

  • The new dist-git solution needs to provide the API calls needed by toddlers


  • Split pagure module to dist-git and pagure module. This change will help us differentiate between those two in the future
