This is all very enlightening, I'll try it later today.
The way I've seen this presented so far has been extremely
confusing. I'll try it out later. Is there a document
around explaining .qpk, .qpm, .qpr files? One thing that I'm
finding a little confusing is what can someone do with a
..qpr file if they download it. I haven't found any options
to the package manager to install a single package file. Am
I missing something?

You're so close....here's the solution.
Packager creates a QPR file by default. If you want to create
a repository, you want QPK/QPM files. Use the -k option to
have packager do this. An alternative is to take your QPR and
tar -zxf my_package.qpr
This will uncompress the QPR (it's just a .tar.gz) into the QPK/
QPM pair of files.
Here's the other solution:
When you have a QPR file, you can pass it directly to
Package Installer with a -u option:
pkg-installer -u my_package.qpr
You could even post your QPR on a web site, so people can
download it without connecting to a repository.
So any of those solutions will solve your problem.
I'm glad it's working for you now.
