      Description

      Source RPMs are built by the rpm/build.sh script in the Jenkins Git repo, but they are not available in the Yum repository:

      [root@sandbox ~]# yumdownloader --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo=jenkins --urls --source jenkins
      ...
      No source RPM found for jenkins-1.423-1.1.noarch
      No source RPM found for jenkins-1.413-1.1.noarch
      Nothing to download
      

      Source RPMs are useful for us to be able to use your packaged version as it allows us to review the contents of the package more easily.

          Agreed; I need SRPMs in order to build and verify binary RPMs. Building from scratch is excessive overhead, particularly since the SRPM is an artifact of the same process that creates the RPM.
