I'm not sure I understood what you need.

If you plan on building a local copy of an already existing repo on internet you have many tools for that:


wget -m

Is used for mirroring a website/ftpserver


rsync

Is a tool used for mirroring files as well...

Using rsync is a bit more complicated as you need the website to provide a module for you to rsync. You can check

http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirror_infrastructure

And use something like

rsync -rlpt rsync.opensuse.org::opensuse-updates/11.3 /repo 

Check the manuals! Or you could try wget as well :)
