I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand what your asking for.

I'm not using the source packages but a copy of the latest source code
I can find for every package (from svn, cvs, tar.gz etc). I then add the
necessary debian/* files, gathered from an existing package when
possible or created, and use the pdebuild tool to build each package
in a chroot.

When all .deb are built, the following commands are run :

apt-ftparchive packages . > Packages
apt-ftparchive contents . > Contents
apt-ftparchive release . > Release
gpg -abs --yes -q -o Release.gpg Release

I should probably build source packages and then binary packages from
those but I already had a hard time to put this together so I'm not
going to change my setup right now :)

Anyway, I just built the packages for Quantal amd64, you can find them
here (they are untested) :


You can use the following apt source :
deb http://coyote.octets.fr/pub/gnustep/packages/quantal/amd64/ ./

Let me now if you test them.
