apt-cacher-ng and probably any non-specific/general proxy server like
for example squid.

Following up to an article in LWN this topic was recently raised on
debian-mentors, please see the thread starting at
and the links contained therein for further details.

In my view nowadays approx and apt-cacher-ng seem to be the most
recommendable solutions among the special-purpose servers (with the
latter apparently having some problems in anything older than Squeeze).
