       jigdo-mirror - Maintain a mirror	of images offered with jigdo

       jigdo-mirror [ config-file ]

       See jigdo-file(1) for an	introduction to	Jigsaw Download.

       jigdo-mirror  is	 a script intended for people who want to offer	direct
       HTTP or FTP downloads of	files for which	only the  jigdo	 and  template
       files are available.

       As  the	first  step  of	 using jigdo-mirror, you need to set up	normal
       HTTP/FTP/rsync mirroring	both of	the `.jigdo'/`.template' files and  of
       the parts that are needed for the reconstruction	of the images. For ex-
       ample, in the case that you want	to mirror Debian CD images with	jigdo-
       mirror,	you  need a mirror of the `.jigdo'/`.template' files and a De-
       bian mirror on the local	machine.

       At regular intervals (preferably	immediately after the normal mirroring
       has finished), schedule a run of	jigdo-mirror. It will search through a
       given directory for any `.jigdo'	files and attempt to create all	images
       offered by each file.

       The  script requires you	to set a number	of variables - please refer to
       the start of /usr/bin/jigdo-mirror for a	description of each  of	 them.
       Since  /usr/bin/jigdo-mirror  will  be overwritten whenever you upgrade
       jigdo-mirror, it	is highly recommended not to change the	 settings  di-
       rectly  in this script. Instead,	personal settings should be saved in a
       file called .jigdo-mirror in your home directory,  or  in  a  different
       file  whose  name  is then passed to the	script as its first (and only)
       command line argument.

       CD  images  for	 Debian	  Linux	  can	be   downloaded	  with	 jigdo

       Jigsaw  Download	<URL:>	was written by Richard
       Atterer <jigdo>, to make downloading	of CD ROM  images  for
       the Debian Linux	distribution more convenient.
