Probably because it's too complicated to be of use unless you're
managing something on the scale of the debian archive. It's much easier
to install mini-dinstall and make a directory for your repository than
it would be to install the real dinstall and set up all the database
stuff and other stuff it needs.

Hmm, I wasn't exactly satisfied with mini-dinstall when I started to use
it, but it seemed like a much better trade-off to contribute feedback
and bug reports than dilute effort with yet another tool to do the same
thing. And now I *am* happy with it, except for a couple of bugs.

Eh? Like everyone else on the internet, you have read access to
cvs.debian.org for dinstall's source.
