Why qtmoko.net?  Is this specific to qtmoko packages?

I suggest to setup a) deb.goldelico.com now, and consider working 
towards b) deb.openphoenux.org when the community controls its domains 
and machines (not Golden Delicious, but perhaps sponsored by them).

I am happy for that response - it means you care about security :-D

Well, it sure is easier for me: I will then simply suggest you to follow 
this: https://wiki.debian.org/SettingUpSignedAptRepositoryWithReprepro

When done (and you are not exhausted by then), I can try isolate and 
explain details I did differently for my https://deb.jones.dk/
