Recently CentOS upgraded from 7.5 to 7.6 and now one of the packages upgraded to a newer version I'm not ready to use yet. I'm planning instead to build and support an older version of this package.

I wonder if there a way to extract or see (perhaps even versioned) original spec files from which CentOS packages are built. Is there a source code repository for spec files which are used to build official EPEL packages?


You can find all the source packages (SRPMs) in the CentOS vault; for example, you’ll find the source packages for 7.5 here.

EPEL SRPMs are likewise available from Fedora (where they’re maintained); you’ll find the source packages for 7 here.

  • Also check Fedora Pagure (pagure.io) for the git repositories for Fedora EPEL packages.
