I assume you're already building .tar.gz packages with mkencap or by
tarring up your encap/pkg-ver directory. If not, I'd start by doing
that, so that you have single files per app that you can transfer
Once you've done that, it's just a matter of figuring out a way to
move them around that works for you, and you can install them in your
slack preinstall or postinstall script. Since epkg has built-in http
support, you could just drop them on a web server somewhere if that's
Or you could serve them alongside your slack source. E.g., if your
slack source is rsync://slack-master/slack, you can add another rsync
module called encap that contains your encap packages. Then write a
simple script to fetch just the package you want and install it.
If you're on a platform that already has modern package distribution
tools like apt, I'd recommend ditching epkg and moving to whatever's
used on your platform. I think you'll find it's less work in the long
