Nice. Is there some documentation on that?

I basically need:

1. A local mirror that has a number of packages from my
local repository with all of their dependencies from the local
repository and/or Sarge.

2. A mirror for debian-cd

I'm trying to figure out if debpartial-cd could be useful for me for
those needs, and I currently can't figure out what I need to write in
the conf file.
