      mm - mirror master

      mm [flags] [package-files]

      mm is the	mirror master.	It runs	multiple calls to mirror in parallel
      and handles locking and minimal retry times.  As with mirror, mm is a
      package written in Perl.	mm presumes that all the package details are
      stored in	a directory called packages.  All the packages for a given
      site must	be in a	file whose name	is the same as that of the site.  So
      in packages/ will be all the package details for the

      -t   Ignore the minimal retry timers.

      -o site:package
	   Only	mirror the given site:package.

	   debugging level will	increase.  Currently the maximum useful
	   level is four.

      -s   Enable status debugging.  This will print out the status of any
	   subprocess as it is spawned or as it	exits.

      The configuration	file is	parsed as a series of statements.  Blank
      lines and	lines beginning	with a hash are	ignored.  There	are are	two
      kinds of statements, controls and	site:package details.  Control
      statements are of	the form:
      You can add whitespace around the	equals.	 Here is a list	of the
      keywords and their values, any defaults are given	inside square

      home	     Directory that mm chdirs to before	doing any work.
