d.f.r.c /is/ the rsync host.  Content gets rsynced to a netapp store in
Raleigh, NC.  netapp is constantly 'snapmirror' to mirror that content
out to public facing netapps which are both d.f.r.c and also the rsync
points for the rest of the mirroring system.  So it is somewhat
possible to catch a public mirror in a half updated state.  The only
workable ways around this are to limit all changes to the content to
once or twice a day and have strict sync times to ensure that the data
is fully set.  That means no more rushed updates, no more "instant"
appearance of extras pushes, etc....
