I have some users, that are subscribed to my APT repository. It had been in "flat format", and its deb string looked like deb http://uri directory/.

Now, I am updating the repository format to standard pool/dists structure, so the deb string looks like deb http://uri distribution main.

Is there a way to migrate to the new-style repository format transparently for existing users?

  • Btw, the server is fully controlled by me, so I can make server-side url-manipulations, run scripts and so on. – Alexander Shishenko Aug 29 '16 at 9:23
