Using debians ftpsync I've synced amd64 to my local file server, and installed debian over the network using ipxe.

It dawned on me, that the content I've downloaded needs to be shared as an apt repo, in addition to just being rsync'ed. Is this correct?

But here's something I don't get (and I don't have that much experience with apt, so forgive me!)

I have packages containing ansible in my synced folders:

./pool/main/a/ansible
./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible-doc_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb
./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible-fireball_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb
./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb
./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible-node-fireball_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb

And I have puppet too:

./pool/main/p/puppet
./pool/main/p/puppet/puppetmaster-common_2.7.23-1~deb7u3_all.deb
./pool/main/p/puppet/vim-puppet_2.7.23-1~deb7u3_all.deb
./pool/main/p/puppet/puppet-testsuite_2.6.2-5+squeeze9_all.deb
[...]

But when I run apt-cache search ansible I get nothing back, where as apt-cache search puppet I get a long list of stuff I can install.

/etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://10.0.4.100/debian wheezy main
deb http://10.0.4.100/debian wheezy-updates main

What am I missing?

There is no package ansible in wheezy repository

https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=wheezy&keywords=ansible

If you want to install ansible, change your repo to jessie

Penny dropped. I had a look at Packages.{gz|bz2|xz} for jessie and wheezy, and I'm a tad wiser! Thanks. –  Jepper Feb 17 at 11:59
