Creating remote apt repos on github
If you read my last blog post, you would know that I am really into deploying applications and systems with deb and rpm packages whenever possible. One of the things you will eventualy want to do, to make deb and rpm package deployment easier, is to create a remote apt or yum repo to host your packages. One of the cooler tricks I have come up with in recent times is creating apt/yum repos in obscure locations.
This aritical will go over how to host an apt repo inside of a git repo on github. This little trick has the following benifits:
- free hosting for you apt repo
- publicly availability
- provide a single location for source code and packages.
