PSF Infrastructure has the ability to create apt repositories stored on S3.
The primary one of these is named "psf" and it is located at
http://apt.psf.io/psf/. The psf repository has been added to all servers by
default and can be used to ship things which are not available in Ubuntu or a
ppa or for which there are patched versions required.
Install from the PSF repository
Generally nothing different needs to happen to install from the PSF repository,
just a simple
apt-get install <something> or adding it to a salt state
should pick up the package automatically.
Uploading to the PSF repository
In order to upload to the PSF repository you must be a member of the
aptly-uploaders group. You can add yourself to this group by simply editing
pillar/users.sls and adding:
access: packages: groups: - aptly-uploaders
below your user account.
After you're a member of that
aptly-uploaders group, you can upload a
.deb or a
.dsc file by simplying placing it in the
directory on the packages.psf.io server depending on if the package is for
trusty or precise. For example:
$ scp python-wal-e_0.7.2-2_all.deb packages.psf.io:/srv/aptly/incoming/psf-trusty/
Every 5 minutes
packages.psf.io will scan this directory for new files,
process them and then they will be available in the PSF repository.
