$ dnf install fedpkg

Getting Source Code#

The upstream JSS source repository is located at dogtagpki/jss.

To clone the repository for development (requires SSH authentication):

$ git clone git@github.com:dogtagpki/jss.git

To clone a read-only repository:

$ git clone ``\ ```https://github.com/dogtagpki/jss.git <dogtagpki/jss.git>`__

The above command will create a new jss folder.

The repository cloning should only be done once. If the repository is already available locally, it can be updated with the following command:

$ git pull

Applying a Patch#

$ git am <patch>
$ git push

Building Upstream Binaries#

To build upstream JSS binaries (without RPM package), first build NSS in sandbox folder, then go to the jss folder and execute the following:

$ export JAVA_HOME=/etc/alternatives/java_sdk_1.8.0_openjdk
$ export USE_64=1
$ make clean all
