Also, building Hugo from source will let us submit the RPM to be included within the main Fedora repositories, so we don't have to use copr at all. I will work on that as soon as I can.
That would be awesome, and the way to go in the future. However, this will be a huge amount of work because Fedora requires all Go libraries (that Hugo depends on) to be packaged as individual RPM packages if I understand correctly. This paradigm is very similar to how Go packages are maintained in Debian IIRC. So, as you probably are aware already, besides the
hugo package itself, there are likely about two dozen other packages that you need to maintain or at least keep track of (the 1/2 or 1/3 that are already packaged by other Fedora maintainers).
Of course, it would be somewhat easier if you could semi-automate the process, something that I still need to improve on the Debian side.
That said, maybe you could build hugo from a tarball with vendoring included, at least as an interim measure, although I do not know if the Fedora community allows that.
In most cases it is better to just use the copr repository but of you want to have the RPMs for direct download I can send them to you.
Indeed, you are correctly. Nevertheless, I have taken the liberty (again) to upload hugo-0.16-2.el6.x86_64.rpm (from https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/spf13/Hugo/epel-6-x86_64/00341389-hugo/hugo-0.16-2.el6.x86_64.rpm) to https://github.com/spf13/hugo/releases/tag/v0.16 for those who would like to use your excellent RPM package on e.g. Mandriva and openSUSE. I haven't tested it, but I am pretty sure it should work well on those distributions too.
