With multiple repositories and mirrors it would give the opertunity to enterprizing people to provide theire own collection of homebrew apps or roms if they live on The Prirate Bay's SeaLand ;-) an added bennifit would be localised mirrors to save on your server load. Think debian/ubuntu!
Some requirements would be a zip like archive system perhaps tar.bz2 and some sort of authentication system such as pgp sighning.
You could at a stretch re-engineer the deb apt packages/system and most of the work will have been done for you![[User:Graingert|Graingert]] 20:42, 8 August 2008 (CEST)
