Your solution will not work for mirroring debian since it does
not do a 2-stage mirroring process. This is
described in: https://www.debian.org/mirror/ftpmirrors
Further, your solution is a bad idea for many reasons. If
you want to know more about this I suggest asking on
the Debian mailing lists or on the #debian irc
channel on irc.freenode.net.
Better would be to use the Debian recommended ftpsync
script. This can be found at:
The instructions are at:
The Debian people know how to best mirror Debian.
Best to follow their guidance. Depending on
your purposes you might not even want a mirror,
you might be better served with a cache.
Again, ask the Debian people for guidance.
