I have a local mirror from ftp.debian.org and I only mirror sources as 
well as i386 and sparc binaries. However, it seems it gets too big to 
put on a 4.3GB disk. We are going to get a bigger disk. If someone has
information about the size of the whole Debian FTP, please let me know.
However, I believe all source packages are there.

I currently use "mirror" program which is very inefficient and I noticed
that Debian project encourages use of rsync and I am going to switch over.
If you can give me a configuration script or something like this, I will 
put it on our server.

The cron jobs will update it twice a week.
