I regularly use wget for that purpose. I have a batch that updates my
local repository. My script is a bit involved because I only pull a
subset of tlnet that I have installed but mirroring the whole thing
could be done with single line incantation:

wget -m -nH -np --retr-symlinks --cut-dirs=1 -R "index.html*,mactex-*"
