freight

A Puppet module for managing Freight - a tool for creating and maintaining apt repositories easily. This module can manage several freight repositories residing on the same host.

Module usage

This module no longer includes automatic webserver configuration as of version 3.0.0. So you need to ensure that you have a webserver hosting your apt repository. Here's an example based on puppet/nginx:

include ::nginx

file { '/var/www':
  ensure => 'directory',
  owner  => 'root',
  group  => 'root',
  mode   => '0755',
}

::nginx::resource::server { 'apt.example.org':
  autoindex => 'on'
  www_root  => '/var/www',
}

class { '::freight':
  document_root => '/var/www/debian',
}

::freight::config { 'foobar':
  varcache                => '/var/www/debian/foobar',
  gpg_key_id              => 'C42A86B2',
  gpg_key_email           => 'john@example.org',
  gpg_key_passphrase      => 'secret',
  gpg_private_key_content => 'private-key-content',
  gpg_public_key_content  => 'public-key-content',
}

Multiple repositories can be created by adding more entries of ::freight::config.
