Copy Repositories with Rsync

You can use rsync with any of the mirrors to keep a local copy. I
have a shell script that I run every so often:

~:> cat rsync.sh
echo “Getting Fedora Core 7 Updates…”;
echo -e “********************************\n”;
rsync –verbose –progress –archive \
–partial –delete –delete-excluded \
–exclude SRPMS/ \
–exclude ppc/ \
–exclude ppc64/ \
–exclude x86_64/ \
–exclude i386/debug/ \
–exclude i386/repodata/ \
rsync://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/updates/7/ “/home/Fedora 7/Updates/”;

This will fetch just the i386 folder from mirrors.kernel.org and
dump it into /home/Fedora7/Updates
