 Automatic Debian Package Repository HOWTO

"There are also many good reasons as to why you may want to create your own package repository. Say you are trying to install something that depends on the package j2sdk1.4. This is not possible without outside sources, since Debian does not distribute JREs or JDKs. Naturally, you could just add the Blackdown deb sources to your sources.list and be on your way. But what if you prefer the Sun JRE? You would have to download it from Sun and manually install it. If you do this with enough packages you will lose track or begin forgetting where you have placed things."
