rpm-versiontracker ships with a default configuration that shows different Openstack repositories.

You can override the default configuration by editing the file.


  • TMPDIR is a path that defines where DNF will store it’s repository cache.
  • REPOSITORIES defines which repositories can be queried. Configured repositories will automatically show up in the top menu.
  • TAGS is a string matcher. It will automatically create a link in the Compare tab of the top menu for comparing repositories that match the tag string.
  • PACKAGE_PROPERTIES defines which properties are pulled from DNF and made available through the API. The interface does not display all package properties in the detailed and comparison tables.
  • SHOW_SOURCE_RPM is a toggle to display (or not) the source RPM packages alongside the various architecture packages.
