I want to use rsync to download to local copy the distro tree and periodically update the update tree. With several installations I would then like to set the local tree up in Software-Manager as one of the sources.
The suse repo FTP sites have some files that my rsync script is not downloading. I wasn't aware of this until I enabled Yast to try an update with the suse online update URL enabled and was surprised to see about 2gb's worth of additional updates that were NOT in my local repo-tree!
Here's a paste from my script, they're all the same on a per-directory basis, the exclude list is below it.
