Personal Debian repository

I've been working for a while on a new reprepro-based personal Debian repository, replacing the old one that was managed by debarchiver. I was going to hold off on switching until I uploaded every package that was in the old repository, but then I realized that was kind of silly and some of those packages need more attention. So I finally did the cutover today.

For details on my personal repository, see my Debian packages page. The new repository is signed with a different key, not my personal key, so that I can automatically sign package uploads. You will now want to install the eyrie-keyring package from the repository or follow the alternative instructions on that page to import the key. The packages in that repository are mostly software I developed that's not of sufficient general interest to upload or packages that aren't up to Debian quality standards for one reason or another.

I love reprepro. debarchiver did very well for me for quite a while, and I'm happy to have used it, but reprepro is just very nice. It's great to be able to use package pools and do automatic propagation of new uploads into multiple repositories, too.

Now I just need to find time to do more software releases.
