[CentOS-mirror] New Mirror Setup Questions

I've setup a new mirror (almost finished) but I have a few questions.
I am running the first sync as a single command right now, sync'ed  
weekly until I get a few questions answered.

Currently, my command is:
rsync -aqzH --delete --delay-updates us-msync.centos.org::CentOS /var/ 

I plan on just allowing http for now, and I'm connected via multi- 
homed DS3's so bandwidth is not a HUGE problem.  I am not limited but  
might have to if the link becomes very heavily used.

My questions are:
If I am to sync 2-4 times a day, how do I setup lock files in a script?
Right now i'm just using a single command (listed above).  I assume  
you will most likely tell me to connect to a Tier 1 server to sync  
from instead of a master server right?
Secondly, if I were to say drop down to only version 5, what is the  
best way to do that as well?
