freight: Freight configuration
NAMEfreight - Freight configuration
DESCRIPTIONThe Freight configuration is a sourced shell script that defines a few important variables.
- The Freight library directory. Typically /var/lib/freight.
- The Freight cache directory. Typically /var/cache/freight. This should be the document root of the web server.
- The architectures to support. Typically i386 amd64.
- The Origin field in the Debian archive.
- The Label field in the Debian archive.
- on to cache package control files or off to read them from the packages on each freight-cache(1) run.
- The GPG key(s) to use. This value must be set either in a configuration file or by using the -g option to freight-cache(1). Multiple keys can be given to sign the repository with more signatures.
- Pathname of a file containing the GPGP private key's passphrase. This sets the --passphrase-fd and --passphrase-file options to gpg(1). The passphrase file can be set either in a configuration file or by using the -p option to freight-cache(1).
- Message digest algorithm that GPG should use to sign the repository. Apt is phasing out SHA1 so it is recommended to use SHA512 for most use-cases. This sets the --personal-digest-preferences option to gpg(1). The digest algorithm can be set either in a configuration file or by using the -a option to freight-cache(1).
- on to follow symbolic links in VARLIB to produce extra components in the cache directory or off to offer no special treatment.
- The default configuration file.
- User-specific configuration file.
- etc/freight.conf, .freight.conf
- Directory-specific configuration files.
- The pathname of an alternate configuration file.

SEE ALSOfreight-add(1) adds packages to the intermediate "Freight library" that is used by freight-cache(1) to build the actual repositories.
reprepro(1) manages Debian archives, too, if Freight isn't your thing.
