Tool to generate an override file from packages?


quite a few people maintain their own aptable archives of packages -
whether for internal use or for publication. In that environment,
override files don't serve a purpose since the ftp maintainer is also
the package maintainer. However dpkg-scanpackages complains about
every package it doesn't find in the override file.

Is there a tool to generate an override file that simply contains the
section/subsection/priority settings from the packages in the archive?

Any hints will be appreciated.
