Hi all,
      I tried to get my query of how to use rsync by the mailing list
debian-user at but the answers were not satisfactory.
You can see the whole thread starting from

What I want to do is to keep the weekly amd64 squeeze build , from t

The above is what I want to achieve. But I'm facing problems as I
don't know how to use rsync

Looking from and

the command seems to come something like this :-

rsync --times --links --hard-links --partial -archive -verbose
-compress --block-size=8192 --exclude=source/
--exclude='*businesscard*.iso' --exclude='*netinst*.iso'
--exclude=alpha/ --exclude=arm/ --exclude=hppa/ --exclude=hurd/
--exclude=ia64/ --exclude=m68k/ --exclude=mips/ --exclude=mipsel/
--exclude=powerpc/ --exclude=s390/ --exclude=sh/ --exclude=sparc/
--exclude=5.0.7/ --exclude=5.0.7-live/ --exclude=i386/
--include='*-dvd.iso' .

While has only 5.0.7 images (not something I'm looking for)

The Taiwan mirror seems to have everything . I had to look at quite a
few mirrors as most of them have Debian Lenny (5.0.x series)  but not
Debian squeeze (6.0.x series).

This is the one I want to rsync. Only DVD-1 does anybody know how can
I achieve that and if there is a simpler way to do it (perhaps
something that I don't know ?)

Looking forward to answers.
