Bug Description

I try this package to make a mirror instead of a custom script and get the following error:

Thu, 23 Feb 2012 10:43:38 +0100: Initiating Ubuntu archive mirror operations...
Thu, 23 Feb 2012 10:43:38 +0100: Lock established for process 27784.
Thu, 23 Feb 2012 10:43:38 +0100: Initiating Ubuntu archive pool sync...
Unexpected remote arg: rsync://ftp.crihan.fr/ubuntu/
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1222) [sender=3.0.7]
./ubuarchive: 82: mail: not found
Thu, 23 Feb 2012 10:43:38 +0100: Archive pool sync failed.

It appears that there is an harmful "--exclude" argument before "$UBUARC_EXCLUDE".
