NAME

ftpsync - Mirror Debian and Debian-like repositories of packages

SYNOPSIS

ftpsync

DESCRIPTION

ftpsync is part of the ftpsync suite for mirroring Debian and Debian-like repositories of packages. As there are way too many mirrors of Debian to populate them all from the machine that generates the archive ("ftp-master"), mirrors are organized in a tree-shaped hierarchy. Thus, every mirror has exactly one upstream from which it syncs, and each mirror can have any number of downstreams which in turn sync from it.
