pkg-cacher - Caching proxy for Debian, Ubuntu, RedHat, Fedora, and CentOS repositories.

License: GPL
Pkg-cacher performs caching of packages and metadata which have been downloaded by
local users. It is most useful for local area networks with slow internet uplink or
many machines running the same distribution and version.

When a package is requested, the cache checks whether it already has the
requested version, in which case it sends the package to the user immediately.
If not, it downloads the package while streaming it to the user at the same
time. A local copy is then kept for use by other users.

Pkg-cacher has been optimized for best utilization of network bandwidth and
efficiency even on slow low-memory servers. Multiple ways of installation are
possible: as a stand-alone HTTP proxy, as a daemon executed by inetd or as a
CGI program. Client machines are configured by changing APT's proxy
configuration or modification of access URLs in sources.list.

The package includes utilities to clean the cache (removing obsolete package
files), generate usage reports.  Experimental features include optional IPv6

Pkg-cacher can be used as a replacement for apt-cacher or apt-proxy, with no
need to modify client's /etc/pkg/sources.list files or as an alternative to
