That list resulted in a mirror of ~15 Gb until a few weeks ago, when the
size started climbing sharply towards 20 Gb. It actually exceeded 20 Gb last
week and I couldn't complete the sync.

Your list has the virtue of being much simpler; I wonder what 5 Gb I have
that you don't?


I doubt it was 6GB worth, but there used to be packages in woody/testing/unstable that were stored in dists/potato which you wouldn't be mirroring with these excludes. They were recently moved to pool so that you would now start mirroring them.
