Er, change that 2nd statement:  
  'The problem is this is who defines what the "multiple"
repositories are of?'

If you want it to "revision" a new repository and links
everytime someone uploads _any_ new package update, that's
going to be a PITA on the server end.

It's much better for _you_ to download the complete
repository, and rsync regularly, and then _you_ decide what
"snapshots" you want of the repository.
