This tool allows you to merge
Contents file generated from a local
with an existing
Contents.gz hosted on a web server.
This is useful to incrementally add a new package to an existing apt repository, without needing to host the entire files locally.
http://acmecorp.org/debian/binary/Packages.gz and generate
path/to/merged/Packages, invoke the command as follows:
mvn org.kohsuke:apt-ftparchive-merge:latest:merge -Durl=http://acmecorp.org/debian/binary/ -Dout=path/to/merged
If the remote repository does not exist, the tool will treat it as empty package list, and simply copy
