Well, at second thought I recommend to use Gapan's metagen-simple and put it e.g. in ~/localrepo
Then there is no other constraint than putting the packages and associated files like .dep in the directory ~/localrepo/salix or in a subdirectory of it, at any level. For instance after having stored the package and its associated .dep in ~/localrepo/salix/b/c then having run "sh metagen-simple all" in ~/localrepo I get this:
Code: Select all
didier[~/localrepo]$ tree
└── salix
    └── b
        └── c
            ├── libreoffice-5.3.0-x86_64-1dj.dep
            ├── libreoffice-5.3.0-x86_64-1dj.meta
            ├── libreoffice-5.3.0-x86_64-1dj.txt
            └── libreoffice-5.3.0-x86_64-1dj.txz

3 directories, 7 files
And as I did put the .dep alongside the package, I get:
Code: Select all
didier[~/localrepo]$ cat PACKAGES.TXT

The corresponding line in my /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc is:

You could give another name than "salix" to the directory below localrepo, but then you'd have to edit accordingly.

Thanks Didier, that seems to work very well!

The line in the FAQ to create the checksums contains a typo, and also assumes packages will be .tgz. A little regex would cover all cases, but here's what I did:
Code: Select all
rm CHECKSUMS.md5; find . -name '*.txz' -exec md5sum {} >> CHECKSUMS.md5 \;

@mimosa. The answer is in metagen-simple.
Code: Select all
rm CHECKSUMS.md5; find . -name '*.t[glx]z' -exec md5sum {} >> CHECKSUMS.md5 \;
