rsync options for mirroring the Cygwin distribution

I used this command line to copy the files from the mirror. We get free traffic from this mirror due to our ISP being a member of

rsync -vva --exclude='*mail-archives*' --exclude='*src.tar.bz2' \
--delete --delete-excluded --delete-after \
--progress \
rsync:// /dist/cygwin

This will remove old files, exclude the mailing list, and exclude src files.
