Announcing package promotion: easily move packages between repositories

Nov 21, 2016 • packagecloud

TL;DR

We’re excited to announce that we’ve added support for package promotion, which allows repository owners and collaborators to easily move packages between repositories!

This feature can be used via the package promote API or via the package_cloud command line tool.

Overview

Create a package repository in less than 10 seconds, free.

Repository owners and collaborators can now easily move packages between repositories they own or collaborate on by using our package promote API or the package_cloud command line tool.

Users should note that upon successful completion of the command, download statistics for the package which was moved are cleared.

Use cases

Users may find this new feature helpful when promoting development builds to production repositories, promoting security releases from internal repositories to public repositories, and many other situations.

Examples
