Hi *,

i want to set up a linux kernel mirror for our 43 devs, but am running into 
problems with some filter rules. I don't want to mirror the entire kernel 
tree (running out of space on our local mirror :( ), but only the major 
release (eg linux-2.6.22.tar.bz2) and the patches (eg 
I've tried serveral combinations of include/exclude and/or filter rules like:
+ linux-2.6.[0-9].tar.bz2
+ patch-2.6.[0-9].bz2
- *
But this does for sure only mirror til linux-2.6.9.tar.bz2. A simple * 
wildcare doesn't fit my needs either :(

Could someone please give me a hint?
