Currently one section is supported for configuring database access.
This can either be sqlite or postgres.

You can override the location of this configuration file by setting the
environment variable ``PKGME_DEVPORTAL_CONFIG_FILE``.


The file should look something like::

db_type = postgres
host = <db host="">
port = <db port="">
username = <db username="">
password = <db password="">
db_name = <db name="">

You will need to create the tables yourself, you can use the
``db/postgres_schema.sql`` file for this::

sudo -u postgres psql -f db/postgres_schema.sql

Contents File (apt-file)
Running in this mode is useful for running locally. It will download the
archives "Contents-%(architecture)s" file on demand and build a local
version of that to map from soname to pkgname.

You can run pkgme locally using:
$ cd /path/to/binary/thing/you/want/packaged
$ echo '{ "package_name" : "mypkg", "description" : "some description" }' > devportal-metadata.json
$ PYTHONPATH=/path/to/pkgme:/path/to/pkgme-devport \
