freight-add: add a package to Freight
NAMEfreight-add - add a package to Freight
SYNOPSISfreight add [-c conf] [-v] [-h] package manager/distro[/component][...]
DESCRIPTIONfreight-add registers package with one or more manager/distro[/component] pairs (or triples). Currently, apt is the only supported manager and package must be one of *.deb, *.dsc *.debian.tar.gz *.orig.tar.gz, *.dsc *.diff.gz *.orig.tar.gz, or *.dsc *.tar.gz. distro may be any arbitrary value but is best suited to naming a particular version of the target operating system (for example, "wheezy" or "precise"). component is optional and for apt defaults to main.
The package files are organized in the Freight library so freight-cache(1) has an easy time of creating package repositories for each manager/distro[/component] later.
