I'd like to mirror things like the Red Hat updates
directories, but I don't like using wget to do it
(because it won't delete files that have been deleted
from the server).
Wget is fine for a once-off mirror, but keeping it
up to date is really best done with rsync (or maybe
some other tool?).
I imagine that rsync puts quite a load on a server,
so I expect that publicly-accessible rsync servers
are pretty rare.
Is there any publicly-accessible rsync server carrying
the Red Hat updates. Maybe Ximian packages as well...
Or should I use a different tool?
