For the sake of symetry, I tried rsync from the DeltaCopy package by
Synametrics on my windows box (XP SP3) with

C:\tlnet>"c:\Program Files\Synametrics Technologies\DeltaCopy\rsync.exe"
-avz --delete --exclude=2008 --exclude=mactex*
rsync://guiling.fr/texlive/  .

I got the same error:

Accès refusé.

(Last line is "access denied".)

I've got no clue as to what is going wrong, since I know nothing about
windows permissions, but this confirms that mirroring using this version
of rsync only leads to problems. I think we should document that.

If we can identify a reliable method for getting a local mirror on
windows (I tend to think a simple ftp client would do for a on-time
mirror, ie without synchronization) and document it somewhere, I think
that would be good.
