Last time I looked at that we decided to go with CVSup, a method
of synchronizing the mirror repository with the central one (and
not the other way around).  It seems to work well for that.
You can find it at
and follow the directions.  There are provisions for having mirror-only
branches, the main restriction being that they cannot have the same
revision numbers as branches in the main repository.
