NAME

bpkg-rep-fetch – fetch list of available packages

SYNOPSIS

bpkg rep-fetch|fetch [options] [(rep-name | rep-loc)...]

DESCRIPTION

The rep-fetch command fetches the list of available packages for the specified repositories as well as all their complement and prerequisite repositories, recursively. If no repositories were specified, then all the repositories previously added (bpkg-rep-add(1)) to the configuration are fetched.

The repository to fetch can be specified either as a repository name or as a repository location (URL or a directory path; see bpkg-rep-add(1) for details). In the latter case, the repository location is added/replaced as if by first executing the rep-add command.

Note that fetching only a specific repository that happens to be a prerequisite or complete of another repository not being fetched may result in an inconsistent repository state.

REP-FETCH OPTIONS

--shallow
Do not re-fetch complement and prerequisite repositories of the specified repositories unless the set of complements and/or prerequisites has changed.
--directory|-d dir
Assume configuration is in dir rather than in the current working directory.
