Configuration file

apt-proxy-import imports .deb files into the apt-proxy cache. It does so by copying the .deb files into the apt-proxy cache folder.

It uses the package lists to determine where each file should be placed, so you should run 'apt-get update' to allow apt-proxy to update the package lists before running apt-proxy-import.  

USING TO BOOTSTRAP A NEW APT-PROXY CACHE

If you have been using apt standalone, you probably have built up a large collection of .debs or .udebs in apt's cache directory. You can import these files into apt-proxy as follows:

1. Update apt-proxy's filelists:

    apt-get update

2. Import files from apt's cache:

    apt-proxy-import /var/cache/apt/archives
 

IMPORTING APT-MOVE CACHE

You can import the apt-move generated cache into apt-proxy using the following command:

    apt-proxy-import -r /var/cache/apt-move

This tells apt-proxy-import to recuse over each directory in the apt-move cache.  

FILES

 /etc/apt-proxy/apt-proxy.conf  

BUGS

apt-proxy-import does not use max_age or max_versions to clean the cache directory on import.

It does not yet import source.tar.gz or Packages files.

You must run it as the apt-proxy user or as root.
