Before you go about reinventing the wheel (unless of course you want to), you might take a look at a public service that already 
exists for community members to provide package repos for various distros:

For example, if you go to https://software.opensuse.org and search for "gambas3", you will find that there are 
community-provided package repos for Debian as well as openSUSE (although they appear to be outdated). I use the package 
provided by a repo maintained by user 'munix9' which is hosted at https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:munix9/gambas3

It should just be a matter of creating a repo for the target distribution & version, and customizing the SPEC file for each 
package & for each target.
