NAME

mkjigsnap - Create a snapshot tree on a jigdo server  

SYNOPSIS

mkjigsnap -n CD name -m mirror -o output directory -d dirname -j jigdo file -t template file -k keyword  

DESCRIPTION

mkjigsnap will create the directory tree and snapshot needed for jigit to work effectively. Once you have created the .template and .jigdo files that you want to distribute, run mkjigsnap on a mirror machine and it will set things up for you. You need to specify all of the options.

-n CD name
Specify the output name for jigit (e.g. warty, sarge-i386-1).
-d dir name
Specify the output directory name to be used for the snapshot tree (e.g. 20041011, rc1).
-m mirror
Specify the location of the mirror containing all the files needed. This must be on the same filesystem as the output directory, as hard links will be used to create the snapshot efficiently.
-o output directory
Specify the output location for the jigdo, template, conf and snapshot. This must be on the same filesystem as the mirror, as hard links will be used to create the snapshot efficiently.
-j jigdo file
Specify the location of the jigdo file to be used.
-t template file
Specify the location of the template file to be used.
-k keyword
Specify the "keywords" which are used in the jigdo file (e.g. Debian, Non-US, Ubuntu).
