As of tonight alioth has an updated rsyncd.conf giving anon rsync
access to all of debian-amd64 (as oposed to only pure64 before).
For mirroring only two things are recommendable:
debmirror and reprepro (mirrorer project on alioth).
Debmirror is good if you want to mirror all debs, not so good if you
wan't to use a finetuned filter. It is self repairing in case
downloads failed or some files end up in lost+found. It can also
md5sum check the mirror if timestamping isn't good enough.
Plain rsync eats way to much resources and should only be used when
you need to make a full mirror, preserving the hardlinks between the
trees and such. If you only mirror one tree please use something more
