I don't know if there are public debian rsync mirrors out there, but if there
are some, then I would use rsync, because it can handle files that have
changed very efficient. FTP can't handle that, it can only transfer the whole
Maybe the rsync advantage is not so big for debian mirrors, because normally
there should be only new files and the old data never changes. But rsync is
good for mirroring anyway :)
