APT Packages

PSF Infrastructure utilizes an apt repository for serving additional debian packages or versions not available from our upstream distributions.

This repository is hosted on packagecloud at https://packagecloud.io/psf/infra.

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.
