Rsync and single file transfer
Most of the scripts/methods I've seen which downloads Debian packages
with rsync do only single file transfer. IMO this must be much more
server friendly than a multi file transfer (no filelist).
Is it possible run a rsync server with anonymous login but restricted to
single file transfer next to an rsync server with restricted login and
multi file transfer? This would allow access for secondary Debian
mirrors besides endusers. It also would allow to separate and measure
the impact endusers have on rsync servers.
Note: IMO a script like mine is also useful for secondary mirrors at
least if not all architectures are mirrored. Could any mirror
administrator make a test an publish any results?
