Hi Wilson,

The InstallPackage tool can automatically fetch packages from your
repository as long as you have a file called MANIFEST.bz2 with the name of
the tarballs you are hosting. This is what we have on gobolinux.org:


I'm not sure if files under subdirectories will be catched or not, but you
can try. Then, the other thing that you will need to do is to edit
/System/Settings/Scripts/GetAvailable.conf and include the URL to your
manifest file on the contribPackagesList array. For example:


My suggestion for you is to move all files to a flat hierarchy and to host
them on your github.io page. That should make it easier for other users to
fetch the packages you're maintaining.
