Message:

Beyond BLFS - use a working link for fedora, unfortunately srpms only. The old cgit links via pagure no longer work, at best you might eventually find the most recent commit, but looking at specfiles and patches there is unreasonably hard.

    152           <para>Fedora
    153           <ulink url="http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/"/> - this site
    154           is still occasionally overloaded, but it is an easy way of looking at .spec
    155           files and patches. If you know their name for the package (e.g. mesa.git)
    156           you can append that to the URI to get to it.  If not, use the search box.
    157           If the site is unavailable, try looking for a local mirror of ftp.fedora.com
    158           (the primary site is usually unavailable if fedora cgit is not responding)
    159           and download a source rpm to see what they do.</para>
     152          <para>Fedora packages are now most-conveniently accessed by downloading
     153          an srpm (source rpm) and using <application>rpm2cpio</application> (see
     154          the Tip at the bottom of the page. Go to <ulink
     155          url="https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/"/> and then choose
     156          which repo you wish to look at - development/rawhide is the latest
     157          development, or choose releases for what was shipped in a release,
     158          updates for updates to a release, or updates/testing for the latest
     159          updates which might work or might have problems.
