When I first wanted a local archive, I used apt-move. It moves the packages
from /var/cache/apt (where they're normally downloaded) into an old-style
Debian package archive. I used it for about a year and a half, and I loved
The advantage is that you download only the packages you want/need, and you

hierarchy and started from scratch (the directory layout is different now).
