Mirroring IPS repositories

Guest Author
I've been wondering for a long time how to mirror an IPS repository. I finally got a link to a page which explains it. So if you want to run an IPS mirror, look at these instructions.

    i want to create a local repository but in your document, you wrote:

    /usr/bin/rsync -a pkg.opensolaris.org::osol_dev_files /export/pkg/file

    what is osol_dev_files? is it possible to rsync main repo so if i create a zone, it uses the local repo instead of going to pkg.opensolaris.org?
