Hello Juergen,

Frontend = installer ? So you mean the Extensions Manager (EM) !?

That's the way it is done in Debian. It is client-based only! The
"server" is just a file-server (http, ftp) which offers the packages
itself (extensions) plus a simple statically, compressed file
(Packages.gz) containing some kind of index.

Here an example out of such Packages.gz.

Description: versatile, high-performance HTTP server
  The most popular server in the world, Apache features a modular
  design and supports dynamic selection of extension modules at runtime.
  Some of its strong points are its range of possible customization,
  dynamic adjustment of the number of server processes, and a whole
  range of available modules including many authentication mechanisms,
  server-parsed HTML, server-side includes, access control, CERN httpd
  metafiles emulation, proxy caching, etc.  Apache also supports multiple
  virtual homing.
  Separate Debian packages are available for PHP, mod_perl, Java
  Servlet support, Apache-SSL, and other common extensions.  More
  information is available at http://www.apache.org/.

[here comes the next package]
---- end ----

Get the point? Also the client/installer (EM) can decide when to update
this index file. So it is totally OK when he keeps a local copy of the
file for many days.

But stay on I will put these thoughts all together.
