Local repository maintenance (openSUSE/Ubuntu)
sudo dpkg-scanpackages . /dev/null | gzip -9c > Packages.gz
deb file:/location/of/repo/ /
deb http://myserver/location/of/repo/ /
sudo zypper sa http://myserver/location/of/rpm/repo My_Local
In both cases, there are ways to crypto-sign the repositories, but probably optional if only accessible locally.
