I have tried to mirror the master www site from master.debian.org for
www.nl.debian.org which we host. I never succeeded in that; esp. the
bugs system has way too much small files for the mirror perl script.
It just gets dog-slow and runs out of memory. So I didn't mirror that
part and redirected it to www.debian.org.

But for the last couple of days I use rsync (over ssh) to mirror
www.debian.org directly form master, and that works absolutely great!
Transfer time is much, much improved even though I have to mirror
maybe as much as 20 times as many files.

If www.debian.org is still using "mirror", they should convert to
"rsync". I can send interested people the command line I use..

Note that www.nl.debian.org/Bugs/ is pretty much up to date ;)
