Not exactly.  I just ran rsync once last night.  It's not yet in the crontab. 
However, if I run it in with the same switches, changes will get deleted.

I'll turn the crontab back on if I get some confirmation that Justin will be 
updating his system on a somewhat regular basis.

BTW, I think if several editors updated the repository as they made changes and 
I published a nag list of out of date packages, it wouldn't be as bad as the 
admittedly tedious initial setup.
