Can the source repository on your server be frozen by
LVM snapshot or just by stopping updates until the
mirror syncs?

FWIW (1) the latest 24 hours saw the following changes
on mirrorservice.org as seen through our filter which
only mirrors for Wheezy and Jessie:

* R14 and builddeps - none.
* NB and builddeps - 28 new files.

FWIW (2) the most recent R14 file I see on mirrorservice.org
is dists/wheezy/main/binary-amd64/Packages Which is
2½ weeks old.

It looks like the build farm generates something like
32 versions of nightly builds.  I wonder what fraction
of the nightly builds are ever downloaded from the mirror
before a new version comes along.  It might save bandwidth
overall if the nightly builds were served direct from your
server without mirroring.
