OK. This was my second choice. I'm afraid it is the only one I can use. ;-

Here I've made a mistake. Currently the Release file contains "Origin: 
Debian" which was the default for years now. Can I change this without 
side effects for the clients?

I'm currently using dpkg-scanpackages and dpkg-scansources. I hope I find 
some spare time to have a look at apt-ftparchive.
