People running mirrors, who have an account on debian.novare.net, might
want to consider using "rsync" to update their trees before running
mirror again.  It should be able to match up the file dates with a
minimal amount of net traffic.  

(It uses a rather nifty protocol that does the equivalent of "diff" 
while minimizing network traffic.)
