I sure like to have continues use of FTP using wget. If RSYNC is not possible, I prefer FTP when I replicate some major online repositories.

HTTP only repository sites are a crime since every site has a different layout and approach - even mirrors make their own layout -, making automated updates almost impossible. Let alone the constant "improvements" done by those sites. RSYNC would be a solution, but not all major sites offer this possibility. Remains only FTP. Here it is almost universal in approach and layouts - and mirrors are mostly real mirrors without fancy things - and thus very well suited for automated updates.
