Code lives here:

called from a crontab entry:
  ./dose4udebs-wrapper /srv/mirrors/debian dose.tmp $WWW/dose

You might have to tweak it a bit to run it locally and to allow for
custom packages.

The question is likely how to merge sid and experimental. I suspect one
might consider dropping all binaries from sid for which sources have an
updated version in experimental, and picking all binaries from said
updated sources. But I fear edge cases might pop up. Might be worth
implementing anyway though.
