       debpartial-mirror  — debpartial-mirror is a program to generate partial
       Debian packages archives mirrors.


       apt-get [-hvs]  [-o=config string]  [-c=file]  {update   |  upgrade   |

       debpartial-mirror is a command-line tool  to  generate  partial  Debian
       packages  archives  mirrors.  It is designed to work (in particular) in
       Custom  Debian  Distributions  framework,   as   an   aid   to   create
       customization of debian systems.

       Partial mirrors can be generated from different apt repositories (local
       created or remote ones) and can  contain  binary  as  well  as  sources

       Generated   partial   mirrors   have  the  structure  of  standard  apt
       repositories: please referr to APT documentation for explanation  about

       debpartial-mirror   uses   a  configuration  file  to  determine  which
       packages, are to be  downloaded  and  monitored  to  generate  a  local
       partial  mirror.  Packages  can be specified by regular expressions, by
       list or by mirrors sections.

       Default configuration file is /etc/debpartial-mirror.conf.

       debpartial-mirror accept commands in the same  way  apt-get  does,  and
       unless  the  -h  or  --help is given, one of the commands below must be

       update    update update is used  to  resynchronize  the  package  index
                 files from specified sources.

       upgrade   upgrade upgrade is used to dowload selected binary and source
                 packages from specified mirrors. The first time this  command
                 is  ran  the  partial  mirror  is generated: after this, only
                 newer or updated packages will be downloaded into the mirror.

       all       all  all is used to perform both update and upgrade commands.
