Has a configuration file listing all suites with metadata about all of them.

Extending Debian repos

We want to enable:

  • Automatic enumeration of suites for a repository
  • Automatic enumeration of repositories for a distro

This page is for exploring the existing solutions, existing hardcoding and requirements for services.

Ubuntu

Tanglu
