Setting up the package repositories

In order to do its work, distro-tracker must know the repositiories to watch. And among those you should define a default repository that will be used in priority for package specific information.

With the admin web interface

The repositories can be configured from the admin web interface which is accessible as “/admin/” in the package tracker website. Make sure that you create repositories with “sources” enabled as almost everything is based on source packages.

With a fixture

If you want to configure you package tracker to have all the repositories like on, you can load a fixture:

$ ./ loaddata distro_tracker/core/fixtures/debian-repositories.xml

Initial scan

Once the repositories have been setup, you should run an initial scan:

$ ./ tracker_update_repositories

This might take a very long time...
