A Debian Archive Kit (dak) HowTo

This document describes setting up and configuring a dak repository for debian packages.


dak is a collection of tools that work together to manage a debian package repository. Designed and used by debian to maintain debian's packages, it is a toolset designed for maintaining a large data set, or lots of packages. In the current version of Debian 5.0 Lenny there are more than 20,000 packages. If you are looking to create a personal repository or something smaller that what debian does, you may want to look at different tools other than dak.
