packages.debian.org APT package repository web interface for deb.whonix.org

Maybe we can somewhat easily prettify deb.whonix.org. Making information for packages by Whonix and later Kicksecure (on own domain name kicksecure.com) much more accessible. Could better present what packages exist, what the dependencies are, version numbers, which repository has which version, changelogs and whatnot. Would be much better searchable since it would get indexed by search engines.

This is apparently what packages.debian.org is using:

But looks rather involved to setup.

I would like to avoid re-introducing apache on whonix.org.

Is there any more lightweight alternative?

Not sure if it is correct, but #devuan on freenode mentioned these git repos:

Documentation for this is very spare. If anyone could contribute how to set this up with nginx that would help a ton in getting this done.
