In this episode we talk about how you can share your package with others.

Just the Tip

  • Paden talks about users sharing the same UID.
    • Some theory as to why you’d do this are in the responses here
    • The comments here go into how and some more reasoning why

Worth noting that if you think you need this, you probably don’t. It has the propensity to do some terrible things to your expectations as a sysadmin, and 99 times out of 100 your problem’s going to be solved a different, better way – nevertheless, it works.


Starts at 13m18s.

I was drinking Victory’s Dirtwolf. Paden was drinking Glenmorangie Original again. Jthan was drinking a Breckenridge Avalanche Amber.

  • In-house/on-site repositories! (Mad props to amayer, one of the regulars in our IRC channel, for suggesting this topic!)
    • Primarily, you’re going to be doing one of two things:
    • You can run your own in-house PyPI repository.
    • As mentioned, I am currently writing a script to manage Arch (and in the future, other distro) repositories. When it’s done, you’ll find it in this directory.
    • Also as I mentioned, I run a (quite highly ranked) public Arch mirror.
