There are so many reasons to why you want to make your own debian repository:

- You have deb packages like mplayer, java (argh!!) or anyone else and want to let them available to easy install

- You want to make your own distro from scratch based on debian instead of follow the LSF (Linux From Scratch – http://www.linuxfromscratch.org)

For this you should first understand the Debian Repository.

After this, You should use a good tool to make and manage your repository like reprepro. To do this read this links:

- reprepro manpage
- Setting up and managing an APT repository with reprepro
- reprepro howto
Good work
