COMMENTS

       apt-mirror uses /etc/apt/mirror.list as a configuration file.  By default it is tuned to
       official Debian or Ubuntu mirrors. Change it for your needs.

       After you setup the configuration file you may run as root:

           # su - apt-mirror -c apt-mirror

       Or uncomment line in /etc/cron.d/apt-mirror to enable daily mirror updates.
