my mirror is using lftp rather than rsync, as I was having consistent 
issues with rsync timing out and bombing.

my sync script looks like...

    /usr/local/bin/lftp -c 'open ftp://mirror.freedomvoice.com && lcd
    /export/mirror && \
          mirror --continue --verbose=1 -x ia64 -x s390 -x s390x -x
    alpha -x SRPMS centos'

I am including the ISOs, but excluding Itanium, s390 and s390x, Alpha, 
and SRPMS...

my current mirror sizes look like...  (I manually deleted lines that 
were trivially small, so this just shows the bulky stuff)

    $ du -hs .
      177G   .

    $ du -hs *
       36G   4.8
      7.9G   5.3
      8.0G   5.4
       18G   5.5
       38G   5.6
       29G   5.7
       40G   6.0

I'm not sure why I have 5.{3|4|5|6} still, I better look....  hmmm.  
those have .ISO's in them that weren't cleaned up with the version 
rollover?   5.6 appears to still be complete?
