    1313See `BUILDING` in the package's directory in the source tree for a detailed explanation of the syntax of the `lists` files.  But basically, updating this package consists of making a change either to lists/common (to pull something in on all distros) or lists/distro-codename-goes-here to pull something in on specific distros.

     15=== OpenFoam and the APT repo ===

     17`precise` and `trusty` add additional packages to the APT repo.  The OpenFoam package provides `.deb` files.  We do not add PPAs on the fly to cluster machines, because sometimes bad things happen, and a repo being down will cause the auto-updater to break.   So we download the `.deb` packages for OpenFoam, and add them to our repositories for `precise` and `trusty` with `dareprepro includedeb <codename> <deb-file>`.  We then list those packages in the distro-specific lists above, with a `+`, to indicate that the package should not attempt to verify their existence at build time.
