Quoting from above;
"       (b) if you are mirroring from ftp.debian.org, and wish to
             *continue* mirroring all architectures, or choose specific
             architectures that your users are interested in, you should
             make sure you are mirroring with rsync (not using wget or
             similar over http, nor using ftp), and immediately switch
             to using the "debian-all" rsync module, instead of the
             "debian" rsync module. That is:

                 rsync ... rsync://ftp.debian.org/debian/ /mirror/debian/


                 rsync ... 
rsync://ftp.debian.org/debian-all/ /mirror/debian/

I have built up a fine-grained mirroring script over time which not only 
selects the architecture but also the version (stable, testing etc) to be 
mirrored.  Unfortunately this script will require ftp/http access 
to ../debian-all.  Is there any reason to restrict access 
to ../debian-all to rsync?
