Several ways.

The one I like: make sure you always sync a directory with the online
one to make sure you have your own copy of the updates. Then, you can
edit the configuration and change "remote-dir" to point to that path
(the "remote-dir" directive can be either a path or a URL). From now
on you should be able to use haze as usual.

The service pack style: update producers (NetBSD?) can always keep a
tar file with all the updates in it available online. You can download
that file and feed updates one by one (script? could also be added as
a feature) to haze. It can take an update id, file, or a URL in the
command line.

Does this answer your question?
