[tex-live] TL-Announce ?

      rsync -larv --delete rsync://rsync.tex.ac.uk/CTAN/ /local/ctan/tex-archive/

FWIW, -a implies -l and -r.

What I use for the CTAN -> tug mirror
(http://tug.org/texlive/pkgupdate.html) is:
nice /usr/local/bin/rsync -avz --exclude='.in.*' --exclude=.htaccess \
 --delete --delete-excluded \

For purposes of mirroring just TL, the excludes are irrelevant (and
hence --delete-excluded too), and the `z' is also useless since the
files are already maximally compressed.  Leaving the same as what Robin
has, actually:

  rsync -av --delete rsync:///tl/path/here .

(Of course the -v is to taste, too.)
