I've been searching for an user friendly solution to manage a repository for some custom .deb packages we're using inside my company. I've briefly looked over the tools listed here, but they seem to me to be just bunch of scripts glued together to do the job (some of them badly documented even).

Is there any "full-blown" solution that:

  • has a web interface to allow configuration and inspection of the repository (configure sign keys, distribution names, etc. basically an interface for the common operations you can perform on a repo)
  • allows users (based on some ACL) to upload packages to certain distributions
  • has hooks for events like "pre-add-package", "post-add-package", etc.

or at least something resembling that?

I've seen cobbler meeting production requirements for redhat and centos (custom repository was necessary). You might want to try it for debian.
