Security Notes This service is secure.


To install packages you can add the following in your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb stretch dc-net

At the moment uploading is limited to users having shell access.


It is configured to allow these sections:

  • dc-net: packages automatically available to DC machines
  • extra: other packages for any other use (desktop, various user tools…)

Build for this Repository

To build for this repository you have to care about:

  • use a proper version numbering:
    • ~<suite> for backports
    • ~dc<i> / +dc<i> if there are DC-specific changes (the later can be appended to the backports suffix)
  • build with or without sources and orig tarball depending if this is your first upload to the DC repo or not
    • for a first upload, or NUR, you will most likely use these sbuild options: -s -A --force-orig-source
    • for subsequent uploads (except binary only for another architecture) you will most likely use these sbuild options: -A

Upload to this Repository

First, sign with your GPG key (using debsign).

You can upload using this dupload configuration snippet:

# dupload does not support FTP TLS :-/
$cfg{'duckcorp'} = {
       fqdn => "",
       method => "scpb",
       incoming => "/srv/ftp/",
       # The dinstall on ftp-master sends emails itself
       dinstall_runs => 1,
