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.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
