RE: Mirror



If it is going to be a publicly available mirror which you intend to keep
up-to-date, I would ping one of the Red Hat developers first (snag one of
the guys in bugzilla).  They may be able to open up their QOS settings (e.g.
similar to the Instant ISO access) to allow you to pull it down faster and
give you some guidance on how the other sanctioned mirror sites are keeping
up-to-date.

Here are some links on how the other distros are doing it, since Red Hat
does not seem to offer this info readily.

Debian script for mirroring their ftp server, with uses rsync and push:

If I wanted to create a local mirror of the fedora ftp site, where should I
start.  I know debian has rsync available.  Should I just run mirror and be
done with it, or is there some reason this is not desired?
