Setting up your own APT repository with upload support
We've previously covered setting up your own repository for the Debian's apt-get system, but we didn't cover managing automatic uploads. Thankfully this is a simple task with the
dupload tools and a small amount of scripting.
The reprepro package is tool for creating an APT repository with a pool structure, the same type of structure the official Debian mirrors use.
The repository may:
- Contain packages for multiple distributions:
- Stable, Unstable, Testing, etc.
- Contain packages for multiple architectures:
- x86, sparc, all, etc.
- Be managed quickly and easily.
