Debian private repositories

Earlier this year, I switched Stanford's internal repositories from an old debarchiver setup that didn't do repository signing to something more modern and secure built on top of reprepro.

While we're not doing anything particularly exciting at a technical level, I thought it might be interesting for people to see how a large site with heavy Debian usage divides up and manages its internal repositories.

I put up a first draft of a writeup at Debian private repositories. This is currently fairly incomplete. One obvious thing that's missing is a pointer to the wrapper script that we use, but I know there's more. I'm happy to prioritize additional documentation based on what people would find interesting. Send me email (or mention on debian-enterprise, to which I'll also send a pointer to this) if there's anything in particular you want to hear about.
