Hi Leo,

Uwe's rsync recipe:

    rsync -a --delete \

should work fine. That will get you the current state of everything.
(More info on mirroring:

Another possibility is to get the TL23 release iso:

That will get you the state of everything as of April 2023 or so.
You can run tlmgr update --all to get all the updates, if you want.
The possible advantage would be that downloading a single iso can be
simpler than rsync'ing thousands of files.

Hope this helps,
