How do I find .spec files on COPR? i was not able to do that, but they are really important for learning and forking

Sorry, I can’t help you with that one, lol :sweat_smile: I’d be surprised if package-maintainers couldn’t help you though.

Do you mean how to find the spec file for a specific package in a specific COPR, or search for spec files across all COPR repos? If you mean the former, then in the COPR of interest, select the Build tab, then select the build you are interested in. Scroll down to the bottom and choose a chroot (e.g., fedora-rawhide-x86_64). The spec file is in there.
