OK, grabbing all of fc-development (rawhide) the "first" is just a matter of 
patience, luck (that other will not be downloading), and a relatively high 
bandwidth link.  However, doing that every night or every couple of days is 
not good.

Could we get rsync on download.fedora.redhat.com?  Running rsync every day or 
couple of days should be more tolerable all the way around.
