I have been trying to find a mirror of the livna repos that can be accessed with rsync.
I am currently using lftp but it takes such a long time just to work out if I need to sync livna.
I use rsync for fedora7 updates and Everything and it takes just a few seconds to find out if I need to sync those, and livna is so much smaller.

So, anyone know a rsync mirror for livna?

Here are a few site I know offer rsync of livna. Btw you can also look in the livna.repo file for other mirror sites as well.

rsync://livna.cat.pdx.edu/rpm.livna.org-fedora
rsync://rpm.livna.org/rlo/
rsync://mirror.lsu.edu/livna-full

Thanks baalin
I've updated my repo check script and it now takes about 15 seconds to check if my local fedora + livna mirror needs updating. It used to take a several minutes checking livna with lftp.
I had just installed a 160gb disk in my laptop and reserved a 20gb partition for holding the repos and dvd iso. Its great to be able to install and remove without the need of internet access and so much faster.
