apt-s3
------
additional "s3" protocol for apt so you can host your giant apt repository in s3 on the cheap!
Author: Kyle Shank
We use this for pressflip.com to deploy and distribute all of our software. apt is a great packaging system and s3 is a great place to backup/store static files. apt-s3 is especially useful and fast if you are hosting your servers within EC2.
THIS NEEDS MORE DOCUMENTATION OBVIOUSLY
TODO
----
* Makefile
* Package up binaries
* Include uploader script to get repository into s3 bucket
* Explain this a little more
This has to be compiled with the source version of apt.
You can get the source here:
bzr branch http://bzr.debian.org/apt/debian-sid apt-debian-sid
Once compiled, the resulting s3 binary must be placed in /usr/lib/apt/methods/ along with the other protocol binaries.
Finally, this is how you add it to the /etc/apt/sources.list file if you want your credentials in the url:
deb s3://AWS_ACCESS_ID:[AWS_SECRET_KEY_IN_BRACKETS]@s3.amazonaws.com/BUCKETNAME prod main
otherwise leave off the credentials and it will draw them from the environment variables AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_KEY_ID.
Simply upload all of your .deb packages and Packages.gz file into the s3 bucket you chose with the file key mapping that matches the file system layout.
