Nwu is "network wide updates for system that use APT".
It's a working prototype under heavy development. It works fine but
haven't been tested in many sites, which explains why I haven't
announced it broadly.
Deb packages are available, and Gustavo Noronha (kov) has offered to
upload it to unstable when it's more stable.
I am the lead developer so if you need any help I'd be glad to help.
nwu + apt-proxy would solve your problem, I guess.
