Managing automatic apt updates?

Debian Pool

I’ve got a simple debian apt repository which looks like this:

|-- dists
|   `-- sarge
|       |-- contrib
|       |   |-- binary-i386
|       |   `-- source
|       |-- main
|       |   |-- binary-i386
|       |   `-- source
|       `-- non-free
|           |-- binary-i386
|           `-- source
`-- tmp

What’s the best way to setup this archive so I can upload packages to in, instead of having to scp them into the right location – then regenerate the package indexes, etc, manually?

mini-dinstall appears to only allow simple directory structures – not nested layouts like I have. Although I guess I could use creative symbolic links …

Update: – Looks like this intro to debarchiver answers my question.
