I can highly suggest the apt-proxy package. It is a cacheing Debian
package download proxy and is highly configurable. I run an
apt-proxy server both at home and at work to reduce bandwidth
utilization and increase installation speed. It downloads any
requested package and then holds onto it for a configurable length
of time in case other machines request the same package. I have some
i386 workstations/laptops and build/development servers for mips,
mipsel, alpha, m68k, sparc, hppa and powerpc. All run sid (unstable)
and my proxy has about 2.5GB worth of files right now with roughly a
one-month retention. The benefit over traditional mirroring is that
you only use disk space and bandwidth for the packages being
requested regularly on your network.
