Up: Rsync Repositories   [Contents]

2.5.1 Setting up an rsync repository for distribution

Carbs Linux repositories automatically sync from the git repostitories and serve it through the rsync daemon. Here is a sample shell script that I use in order to sync repositories. Feel free to customize for your own use.

    git -C "$GITDIR" pull

    rsync -avcC --delete --include=core --exclude=.rsync,.rsync_root "$GITDIR/." "$SHAREDIR"

    printf '%s\n' "$HOSTNAME" > "$GITDIR/.rsync"
    for dir in "$GITDIR/"*; do
        [ -d "$dir" ] || continue
        [ -f "$dir/.rsync" ] ||
        printf '%s/%s\n' "$HOSTNAME" "${dir##*/}" > "$dir/.rsync"
        printf '..\n' > "$dir/.rsync_root"

You can then create an rsync user for serving the repositories.

$ adduser -SD rsync

Create /etc/rsyncd.conf and a service configuration as well.

    uid = rsync
    gid = rsync
    address = example.com
    max connections = 10
    use chroot = yes

        path = /pub/share/repo
        comment = My repository

Create a service file at /etc/sv/rsync/run (runit):

exec rsync --daemon --no-detach
