[CentOS-mirror] Mirror setup (also new mirror announce)

I would suggest lots of --exclude directives in your rsync script; for 

rsync -aqzH --partial --delete --exclude '/3.*' --exclude '/2.*' 
us-msync.centos.org::CentOS /foo/bar/pub/CentOS

or, barring that,

rsync -blah -blah --exclude '/2' --exclude '/2.1' --exclude '/3' 
--exclude '/3.1' --exclude and so forth

I mean, I'm a n00b, and there's probably a better way to do it; but that 
should work (crosses fingers).

I'd also like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name's 
Will, and I'm the Linux admin for the Computer Science Department at 
Virginia Tech.  I've set up a publicly available CentOS mirror at 
http://mirror.cs.vt.edu/pub/CentOS and 
ftp://mirror.cs.vt.edu/pub/CentOS/ - At some point, there will be an 
entry page at http://mirror.cs.vt.edu/ but for the moment... there's not.
I sync from us-msync once or twice a day, and I am planning on upping 
that to 4 times soon.  My upload isn't capped (yet); I'm waiting to see 
how much interest there is in the mirror before I decide that it needs 
to be capped.  We're tied into the University's OC48; but I am sharing 
with 20,000 students and faculty members.
