Default Need help with approx configuration changes for squeeze

I'm just getting around to noticing the change in how volatile
packages are made available. I would like to include proxy
cacheing for these in my approx server, but I'm puzzled as to
what should be on the line in approx.conf.

Also, when looking at the new approx.conf file, I see what appears
to be a new format for debian/security. From approx.conf as shipped:

# Here are some examples of remote repository mappings.
# See http://www.debian.org/mirror/list for mirror sites.

#debian http://ftp.debian.org/debian
#security http://security.debian.org/debian-security
#volatile http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile

Since I live in Colorado, I think I should change the first line to:
debian http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian
But I don't know what to do with either of the other two lined
to turn them to someting functional. (Well, remove the #, of course.
but) Is that really enough? I thought the word 'volatile' was being
eliminated.

Thanks,

volatile.debian.org is no longer used. Instead use the "stable-updates"
repository on the master archive or one of it's mirrors.

So the replacement line in approx.conf should be

volatile http://stable-updates/debian-volatile ? or
volatile http://stable-updates/stable-updates ? or what?

The volatile on the left side is the name of a directory within
the /var/cache/approx on my server at home. I don't think it
needs to be changed. Correct me if that is wrong.

But note that there *two* instances of the string 'volatile' in
the maintainer's suggestion. Are they both to be changed? or not?

...nonexistant. You'll use the "debian" entry. So, you'll list:
deb http://localhost:9999/debian/stable
AND instead of your volatile entry you'll use:
deb http://localhost:9999/debian/stable-updates

I'd say better :

deb http://localhost:9999/debian squeeze main
AND instead of your volatile entry you'll use:
deb http://localhost:9999/debian squeeze-updates main

1) use the name of the stable release, it will help you not having troubles
2) squeeze and squeeze-updates are what's called a suite, it's after the URL
in the deb line.
3) you also need the archive area, at least main, but you can add contrib and
non-free.

Approx just has to know where is the Debian root archive. So no changes, and
you can use the same entry for lenny and squeeze.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
And also for wheezy.
In my case, there are tweeks that can be useful to others:

1) the non-comment entries in /etc/approx/approx.conf should be:

debian http://ftp.debian.org/debian
security http://security.debian.org/

Some comments in the skeleton version installed by the approx package
are misleading on this issue, IMHO.

2) In my case, the approx instance is not on localhost for most of my
hosts, It is on the host I call 'gq', but which is also
192.168.1.12. I use the IP address, not gq because the IP can be used
in conjunction with netinst CD. So my working version of /etc/apt/sources.list
on my main computer is

deb http://192.168.1.12:9999/debian/ squeeze main non-free contrib
deb http://192.168.1.12:9999/security/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://192.168.1.12:9999/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free

Note that none of these five lines (in two different files on two different
hosts) contain 'volatile'.

But it appears that a 'volatile' service is not yet running for
wheezy, so I have the 'wheezy-updates' line commented out on the hosts
that are running wheezy.

I'm happy. Thanks for the help.

As expected for squeeze and above. The services previously provided by
volatile.debian.org and its completely separate mirror system have now live on
the same infrastructure as the latest release.

That *is* the "volatile service" for Wheezy. The "*-updates" repository on
the master server (or one of its mirrors) has completely replaces the "debian-
volatile" repository on volatile.debian.org.

(The "debian-volatile-sloppy" was effectively replaced by backports for a
while, I don't think it ever got a package during the Lenny release.)
