       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.

       unless the -h or --help is given, one of the commands below must be

                 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.
