Signing local repositories
 
Hello!

I've made a local repository for my preinstalled debian project; this is for
faster automatic installation of the systems. I've made the repository with
the bpo reprepro.

I don't know how to sign the repository. I've never used signatures, gnupg or
any of these terms. Can anyone give me a run-down of how to do this?

There aren't any security issues here -- All I want is that my local
repository will be trusted by the clients.

Peace!

Create a gpg-key, call it somethign like "apt@example.org". Then
in your reprepro configuration file add:

Sign-With: apt@example.org

Now rebuild your repository and that'll do it. If you like take a
look at this tool too:
