Actually, I was trying to setup my own private mirror, because neither
apt-proxy nor apt-cache worked for me (did all but the "using cached
copies" part: when one computer asked for one file, they both download
and save the needed file(s) fine, but if then another computer asked for
the *same* file(s), they always downloaded the file(s) *again*, instead
of passing on the cached copies).

But I didn't know about approx. I tried it, and it worked! Even the
"using cached copies" part :-) Forget about the private mirror ;-)

Thanks for the help.
