jablicator - Share package collection choice across machines


jablicator [--root <path>]


jablicator generates an "apt-get"-able package. The package itself is empty. However it
has a dependency for every non-required Debian package that is on the machine. This
program will create and populate two directories dists and pool in your working directory.
You can then move them to a web accessible location.

This utility is designed to reduce software distribution and maintenance costs by reducing
redundant system administration. For example, I have spent a lot of time finding and
vetting image processing software from Debian's large package collection. With this
utility, my image processing colleague down the hall can easily benefit from the fruit of
my labor.

There are many replication techniques in Debian. This one has the advantage of using the
apt and dpkg infrastructure. A disadvantage is the possibility of packages changing out
from under you in the Debian distribution (especially in testing or unstable). That means
that jablicator output can grow stale over time if it is not regenerated.


The packages produced by this program contain a lot of information, including a list of
the Debian packages installed on the machine and a listing of apt-get sources. Some system
administrators consider sharing such information a security risk.
