today's project is fwmirror, a handy tool to mirror Frugalware archives. basically it handles the followings:

  • it needs a server, if you want the newest stuff and don't care about being slow, then you need "rsync://rsync.frugalware.org/pub/frugalware/"
  • it handles different Frugalware versions (NOTE: since -current has a new structure, versions other than -current will be supported by fwmirror only after 0.5)
  • it handles different architectures, including the special "source" one
  • it allows you to pass any custom options to rsync

ok, not a big deal, but useful, isn't it? :)
