I have written a bash script for our local mirror. It uses rsync for the
Packages files, and wget using the contents of the Packages file. It can
be configured for different architectures and dists.

Problems: it is not very clean, and it does not delete old packages (but you
can make a mirror of the mirror...). I use it since 6 months or so.

If anyone is interested, I can make it available.

I tried debmirror, but somehow I did not get it working... but I do not
remember why. Possibly because we have a proxy here that requires
authentication. I did not like it anyway.
