What would be better compared to a mirrored concept?

If you think this is better, that would be no problem even with mirrors.

While thinking about that:
Yes this is better because say an updated extension only covers two changes
and all other files stay the same, then rsync would only mirror these

Furthermore, if you keep old versions, then it would probably make sense to
send diffs instead of the whole extension:

The remote mirror would say this to me:
"Version 1.2.3 is the same like version 1.2.2 which you already have except
those changes which are in the Patch I am sending you now..."
