Unable to create full mirror of Revo CRAN repo

Summary

Using rsync to attempt to create a full Revo CRAN repository mirror as described in the Revolution R Enterprise Installation Guide fails with a timeout:

$ rsync -rtlzv --delete www.revolutionanalytics.com::REVO-PKG . 
rsync: failed to connect to www.revolutionanalytics.com: Connection timed out (110) 
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(124) [receiver=3.0.6]

This is due to a mistake in section 4.1, step 2, of the manual which says to use the command:

# rsync -rtlzv --delete www.revolutionanalytics.com::REVO-PKG . 

There is no rsync daemon running at www.revolutionanalytics.com. The correct command should be:

# rsync -rtlzv --delete packages.revolutionanalytics.com::REVO-PKG/3.1/stable/src/contrib .
