I am going to make local repository for fedora updates and extras and I am wondering what is the best tool for it: rsync or wget.
It depends on the remote server you are trying to mirror.
If it provides rsync-access, then rsync probably is the preferable choice.
If it doesn't provide rsync-access, then other tools like wget, lftp, curl or other tools (there are plenty of them, all have pros and cons) are possible escapes.
What I need is to also remove old versions automatically while transfering the new ones. I was playing with wget mirror function but it takes everything from the root dir on the remote server but I only need for fc3.
Looks like lftp could do this job or am I mistaken?
