Build Packages-file



Hello,

I'm wondering if it is possible to build the Packages-file that tells apt
about packages in a directory-tree, on my own. What I mean is: you have
some unofficial .deps and want to use "apt-get install one_package" so
dependencies are solved by apt. I think it is necessary that there is an
Packages and Packages.gz so apt can create cache entries for this
unofficial packages, like the Packages/Packages.gz contained in the
distribution tree, e.g. 
/ftp/pub/debian/2.2r0/bin_1/dists/potato/main/binary-i386/Packages{.gz}.

The content of these files is similar to output of dpkg -f a_dep_pkg.dep,
but there are some entries missing.

Thanks, Frank Grimm.
