Anonymous rsync?  That's the methodology recommended in the yum article
and howto, where the site that you are mirroring permits it.  rsync has
certain advantages as it tries to be very efficient and only get what is

There is a scriptlet that will rsync the fedora core from
mirror.dulug.duke.edu in the article.  You may want to play with the
depth of the rsync target, depending on whether you want to grab the
iso's and source rpm's.  I've rewritten the script to go to the
1/i386/os level (IIRC without looking).
