talk about repos the idea of mirroring
This example demonstrates how to mirror a repository using the repository mirror application available in the equinox p2 tools.

Running the Mirroring Tools
Run from the command line by running the Admin tool with the args you have below (e.g. eclipse.exe -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.tools.MirrorApplication -source ...).
The attached example performs the basic mirroring of an artifact and metadata repository into a target repository. The target repository will be an exact mirror of the source repositories. This means any information on the target repository prior to mirroring will be lost, and if there is no target repository to begin with then a new repository will be created.
-console -consolelog -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.tools.MirrorApplication -source Insert Source URL (e.g. http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.4milestones/) -destination Insert Destination URL (e.g. file:/tmp/3.4milestonesMirror/) -ius all -artifacts all -overwrite
