The FreeBSD man page site is an excellent source for online web access
to various system man pages.  More than just FreeBSD.  They are
hosting the service but include access to many other systems man
pages.  Unfortunately Debian is not among them.  But I mention it for
you in your quest for online man pages.


Debian man pages are provided here at this site:

The online debian man page for dpkg-scanpackages is available here:


The Debian wiki is also a good source of information.  Follow the
links through from it and you will find a HOWTO document on it.


As an alternative many people use other package pool management
systems.  Such as reprepro.  I have converted over to using it and am
happy with it.
