Copying a package

To copy a package from the channel conda-forge to a personal channel such as jsmith:

anaconda copy conda-forge/glueviz/0.10.4 --to-owner jsmith

conda-forge/glueviz/0.10.4 is a “spec” and can match either of two formats: user/package/version or user/package/version/filename.

Deprecated options

Previously labels were called “channels”, and the anaconda copy command has deprecated options from-channel and to-channel that expect to operate on labels.

These deprecated options should not be used.

If you attempt to use them in a command such as anaconda copy --from-channel conda-forge --to-channel jsmith glueviz, you will get an error that Label conda-forge does not exist.
