If you use rsync for mirroring, you can still mirror potato only, as long as
you use the --copy-unsafe-links option.
(This works only for potato, because woody etc. don't have symlinks. If you
ever want to mirror those, you can use one of the "partial mirroring" scripts
that have passed over debian-devel recently, check the archives.)
