You'll have to write them first. I've only written down some basic

Multiple repositories and all is possible, but let's keep it simple at

You'd better do the same as we did with lnet. Add a fpmake file to
tiOPF/fpGUI's repositories. If that works ok. (Check if fpmake archive
works, and if you can use that archive to install the package, without
any other resources) we can build and add it to the server.
