PSF Infrastructure utilizes an apt repository for serving additional debian packages or versions not available from our upstream distributions.
The psf/infra 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#
Access to the packagecloud repository is managed by the PSF Infrastructure Team. Packages can be uploaded by providing them to the team, or if a contributor consistently contributes to this repository, they may create a user with packagecloud.io and have their user added to the team.
