How can we make downstream package maintenance easy?
To answer this, we will first address the shortcomings of the existing dist-git-based development process for Fedora/CentOS/RHEL.
For OpenSSL, rebasing to a newer upstream version in the presence of many downstream patches often requires adjusting the patches, while a git rebase in source-git could have automatically solved the conflict, or at least simplified the rebase.In fact, many of our patches are cherry-picks from upstream. Cherry-picking would be significantly easier with source-git based workflow.

The goal of this talk is to learn how to create a source-git repository using packit and define a workflow to maintain packages in source-git.
 We will consider OpenSSL as an example and demonstrate how the migration works.
