repo tools

Hi debian-derivatives,

I work on hLinux, HP's Debian derivative that is used with HP Helion. I unfortunately was unable to attend DebConf last year, however a colleague of mine gave a talk about hLinux in Portland. One of the key pieces of feedback we received was to go out and use existing tools to manage our repo. Looking back a year ago when we started this endeavor we quickly tried a few tools, but in the rush to get our first product out the door we eventually ended up writing our own tools that wrapped around tools like dpkg-scanpackages, dpkg-scansources, and apt-ftparchive for example.

I have looked at the wiki with a large list of possible tools [1], but I was curious to know what tools other derivatives are using to build their repos?
