from the rsync manual
--del                   an alias for --delete-during
--delete                delete extraneous files from dest dirs
--delete-before         receiver deletes before transfer (default)
--delete-during         receiver deletes during xfer, not before
--delete-after          receiver deletes after transfer, not before
--delete-excluded       also delete excluded files from dest dirs

--delete-before will need less disk capacity, with --delete-during slightly quicker rsync, but with --delete-after --delay-updates your reporitory will be much more stable during update. With last options using --filter='R .~tmp~/' is highly recommended, this will prevent disk capacity leak in case interruption during rsync. And, RTFM. :-)
