describes how to generate the repository, with the note that the only
requirements are for one or more *.pkg.tar* files in the same directory
as a *.db file which contains the database itself.

If you want an HTML index, you can generate your own or rely on
webserver software to do so automatically, but it would be entirely for
the interactive viewing pleasure of the user.
