 APT Pupil: your own repository

"Uniformity is one of the basic principles of software management. If you want to lower the work involved in managing multiple systems, you should try to install software as similar as possible in all of them. To do that, a decent system of software delivery is necessary, so installing the new versions or new packages in all systems is not a hard chore. I like APT. But, like all repository-based systems, it has the weakness that, if you install something that's not in your repos, you are outside the system."
