	Indeed it does. It's a great idea to manage debs downloaded.
	That means that it also saves me from typing apt-get
	autoclean. :-)

	I usually build a partial local mirror and then burn copies on
	CDs so that I can give them to friends (with some extras like
	StarOffice and Helix Gnome).

> So how do I download those packages only once?

	I usually use

	# apt-get -d install <package>

	It only downloads the packages and then I use apt-move to move
	them to my local mirror.

	Hope this helps, Roger...
