I use lftp to do it. lftp mirror will only grab new files, so once
mirrors are created - keeping them updated is little bandwidth.

You also could use rsync, but rsync access is not given to everyone.

Some mirrors may allow you rsync access, some don't.

I have a user with permission to write to /var/ftp/yum

This runs in his crontab once a night


function mirror_release {



    [ ! -d ${MR_CORE} ] && mkdir -p ${MR_CORE}
    [ ! -d ${MR_UPDATES} ] && mkdir -p ${MR_UPDATES}
    [ ! -d ${MR_EXTRAS} ] && mkdir -p ${MR_EXTRAS}

#    cd ${MR_CORE}
#    lftp -e 'mirror -e && exit' ${CORE}
    cd ${MR_UPDATES}
    lftp -e 'mirror -X debug/* -e && exit' ${UPDATES}
    cd ${MR_EXTRAS}
    lftp -e 'mirror -X debug/* -e && exit' ${EXTRAS}

mirror_release 3 i386
mirror_release 4 i386
mirror_release 4 ppc
mirror_release 4 x86_64

echo "mirror completed at `date`" |mail -s "mirror_report"
mpeters localhost

Once core is synced - I comment out the core stuff since it doesn't
