I have an open-source project that uses Travis CI for continuous integration. One of the targets is the Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) which is a Debian platform. I am trying to stay away from creating a big tgz file that is a mirror of the /usr folder of a Raspberry Pi installation, since I would have to host it somewhere, update it etc etc
What I have done so far is to get the actual .deb files from here during the build:[http://raspbian.mirror.constant.com/raspbian/pool/main](http://raspbian.mirror.constant.com/raspbian/pool/main/o/openjdk-8/)
extract them locally, and then link against that. It works great, but my problem is that the content of the above page changes regularly with new versions of the packages, breaking my CI build.
1.) Is this a good way of even going about this?
2. ) Is there a way of establishing the “latest package” link for a given package? That is, what an “apt-get install open-jdk-8” would actually refer to in terms of debian package? (keep in mind that I can not run that command as it would have to run on the Pi for that)
