I don't know where/how to access the rsync server though.  A quick
search in savannah.gnu.org and Google, doesn't reveal much.

I'm using something like this:

  rsync -azvH --delete --exclude "a?b,v" --exclude config \
     cvs.savannah.gnu.org::sources/emacs/. /my/emacs/cvs/mirror/.

The trailing "/." is an old habit, so I don't have to think about whether it's going to mirror "emacs" to "mirror", or mirror "emacs" into a subdirectory of "mirror"; it may work fine without them. The "a?b,v" is because of a file with a ^L control character in its name (in an Attic subdirectory; it's a dead file, but the cvs->svn mirror code sees it anyways and gets unhappy); "config" is to get rid of CVSROOT/config which has some keywords that the cvs->svn code doesn't recognize.

I use VCP and SVK to do the mirroring (install both, use "svk mirror" to set up the mirror, "svk sync" to update), but SVN for most of my actual work. VCP is a little finicky; the version I've got gets unhappy if your working directory is in NFS(!), but start it in a local /tmp and it'll be fine.
