Need a guide for setting up a public mirror.


My employer has the bandwidth and hardware necessary to provide a public mirror for the community. While I can find distro-specific information on setting up a mirror for that distro, I'm having trouble finding anything on what I need to think about when setting up the public mirror itself.

I'm looking for guidance on how to set up http/https, ftp, rsync, and whatever else I should have available on this proposed public mirror. Hopefully under CentOS, but that I can be flexible about.

I'm mostly interested in best practices, hoping I don't miss something in creation of the public mirror.
