Acquire packages from the local file system, instead of a remote http server? #3106
How difficult would it be to add a feature for stack to be able to install packages from a local mirror or a subset of an LTS, without using an http server, but directly getting the resources from the local file system.
The use case is thus:
This could be somewhat similar to #359, only that the cached downloads will be prepared on a different machine than the one that will use them.
I'm currently looking at the source code but it is difficult to get a ballpark estimate in a short amount of time for me, as I don't have prior experience with the codebase.
If it so happens that it isn't a big modification, me or someone else in my company will be more than happy to implement it and submit a PR.
