NAME

ostree-summary - Regenerate or view the summary metadata file

SYNOPSIS

ostree summary [--gpg-sign=KEYID] [--gpg-homedir=HOMEDIR] {--update} [--add-metadata= KEY=VALUE...]
ostree summary {--view | --raw}

DESCRIPTION

The summary file is an optional higher level form of repository metadata that describes the available branches. It needs to be manually regenerated after a series of commits. Among other things, this allows atomically updating multiple commits.

OPTIONS

--update,-u
Update the summary file. This option can be combined with --add-metadata to add metadata fields to the summary.
If the repository has a collection ID configured, the ostree-metadata branch for that collection ID will also be updated with a new commit containing the given metadata, which will be signed if the summary file is signed.
--add-metadata,-m=KEY=VALUE
Specify an additional metadata field to add to the summary. It must be in the format KEY=VALUE or as two separate arguments. The keys must be namespaced for your organisation or repository using a dot prefix. The values must be in GVariant text format. For example, exampleos.end-of-life "@t 1445385600". This option can be used multiple times.
--view,-v
View the contents of the summary file in a human readable format.
--raw
View the raw bytes of the summary file.
--gpg-sign=KEYID
GPG Key ID to sign the summary with.
--gpg-homedir=HOMEDIR
GPG Homedir to use when looking for keyrings.

EXAMPLES

$ ostree summary -u
$ ostree summary -u -m key="'value'"
