[opensuse-buildservice] Bootstraping a Deb based distro?

raspbian (a Rasberry PI distro) into our local instance so we can start
building a few of our projects against it.

distro's with no mention of how to support deb based distro's. I did
find a old post from 2008 that gave some instructions here:

issues. Is that still the case?

3) can Download on Demand be used for deb based distro's? If it can,
what would the metafile and mtype for the <download> element? gather it
would be the Packages (or Packages.gz/xz?) and mtype as deb? and the
download URL points to where in the repository? The pool directory or ?

scripts to do the mirroring? any chance they can be shared for deb based
