Thank you, if I understand this correctly, to have the system download 
only the system updates for my system I can simply use

rsync -vaz --delete isc.pcbsd.org::ftp/system-updates/9.\* .

How can I then have the systems download the updates from a mirror and 
the PBI from a different one ?
or, if I sync only the PBIs that I need (using the same structure) will 
the AppCafe/System update work with the same mirror ?

Thank you for your help
