wmf-sre-laptop is a Debian package which provides example configs, scripts and documentation to setup access to SSH (production and Cloud VPS), Git and pwstore. It also pulls in packages that you'll need as dependencies. It's available on our internal repository. The source is in the operations/debs/wmf-sre-laptop repository.

  • First of all you need to install the repository key for, it's documented here: APT repository#Security
  • Then create a file under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ called something like wikimedia.list containing the following (the package should work for Buster and testing/sid):
 deb buster-wikimedia component/wmf-sre-laptop
  • Then apt install wmf-laptop-sre, it will pull in a few packages you'll need as well.
  • /usr/share/doc/wmf-laptop-sre/README contains pointers to the next steps to setup git, SSH and pwstore access.
