I have an installation service in a central data centre and proxies in other data centres and need to pre-populate those proxies with the contents of the installation.
What's the best way to do this?
I've been thinking of writing a script along the lines of:
--includeoption to include all additional packages above and beyond the minimal setup, run this once inside each DC to populate the proxy.
apt-proxy-import - apt-proxycan add debs directly into the cache, take them from an existing installs /var/cache/apt/archives dir.
Take the cache miss and have a slow first install?
