Configuring Reprepro for apt-file

I use reprepro to manage my debian/ubuntu repos.
I noticed, however that apt-file search didn't return results.. so what had I confgured incorrectly?

answer (provided by Daviey from the Ubuntu UK Podcast).
I needed to add the following line to each distribution in conf/distributions.

Contents: .gz

after that I ran "reprepro export" to update the indices. Job done.

Now to test it.

~$ apt-file update
~$ apt-file search
openmolar-orig: /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/openmolar/
openmolar-orig: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openmolar/
openmolar-orig: /usr/share/pyshared/openmolar/
