With recent backend updates, the Arch Linux package repositories contain symlinks in order to remove some duplicate packaging work and reduce repo size for packages that are non-architecture specific. As such, mirror administrators now need to be aware that symlinks are coming down the pipe. --links (-l) should be used instead of --copy-links (-L) in order to ensure the symlinks remain in place. The [Local Mirror Wiki Page][1] has also been updated to reflect this.
