that should work - you will have to try it though - bear in mind that when 7.x comes out you would have to update your mirroring command if you want to only mirror 7.x

using http to mirror is inefficient and is frowned upon heavily because of the load it generates on the servers you mirror from. using rsync on this scale is most efficient and rsync is actually the most common mechanism for mirroring

Kind regards,
