freight-init — initialize a Freight directory

Synopsis

freight init [--libdir varlib] [--cachedir varcache] [--archs archs] [--origin origin] [--label label] [-v] [-h] -g gpg dirname

Description

freight-init will setup a directory to be used by Freight. It will generate small wrappers around the original Freight commands. Use freight-add(1) and freight-cache(1) to work against the VARLIB and VARCACHE given to freight init.

The benefit of using freight-init is to automate the setup of Freight and to configure all data to be stored in one directory.

Configuration is stored in dirname/etc/freight.conf.
