There are some notes on the mirroring process here:

http://rubyforge.org/docman/view.php/5/231/mirror_setup.html

To summarize - there's an hourly (oops, I need to update that frequency
in the document) cronjob that checks for new gems, adds them to the gem
index, and triggers an rsync out to all the mirrors.
