The Nov ?? Deb weekly news contained:
Debian Package Caching. Jonathan Oxer wrote about caching Debian
packages in order to save bandwidth when updating or installing
multiple Debian machines. The 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.
