That obviously depends a bit on what is actually needed to run (and then
on talking to DSA, but they don't bite so much :) ).
I guess you need a mirror (or at least packages/sources files) as input,
though you might want to check if you can use an existing database
within Debian to just use the already exsiting data.
And then whatever $packages. And disk space, RAM, CPU requirements.
If you list that all up, im sure DSA can check and probably help out.
Now, your data input: What are you using? You might want to check if
the buildd or archive databases don't already hold the data you need (or
are easily extended to do so), and then just use that instead of
duplicating the extraction.
Marge, I’m going to miss you so much. And it’s not just the sex. It’s
also the food preparation.
