              Configuration file

       apt-proxy-import  imports  .deb files into the apt-proxy cache. It does
       so by copying the .deb files into the apt-proxy cache folder.

       It uses the package lists  to  determine  where  each  file  should  be
       placed, so you should run ’apt-get update’ to allow apt-proxy to update
       the package lists before running apt-proxy-import.

USING TO BOOTSTRAP A NEW APT-PROXY CACHE

       If you have been using apt standalone, you probably  have  built  up  a
       large  collection of .debs or .udebs in apt’s cache directory.  You can
       import these files into apt-proxy as follows:

       1. Update apt-proxy’s filelists:
           apt-get update

       2. Import files from apt’s cache:
           apt-proxy-import /var/cache/apt/archives

IMPORTING APT-MOVE CACHE

       You can import the apt-move generated cache into  apt-proxy  using  the
       following command:

           apt-proxy-import -r /var/cache/apt-move

       This  tells  apt-proxy-import  to  recuse  over  each  directory in the
       apt-move cache.

FILES

        /etc/apt-proxy/apt-proxy.conf

BUGS

       apt-proxy-import does not use max_age  or  max_versions  to  clean  the
       cache directory on import.

       It does not yet import source.tar.gz or Packages files.

       You must run it as the apt-proxy user or as root.
