The Nov ?? Deb weekly news contained:

Debian Package Caching. Jonathan Oxer [11]wrote about caching Debian 
packages in order to save bandwidth when updating or installing   
multiple Debian machines. The [12]apt-cacher utility was originally   
written by Nick Andrew to maintain two Debian systems over a slow
modem connection. It runs as CGI program and only needs to be set up
on one machine.

Haven't tried it yet.
