Using wget to mirror just part of a web site?

I looked at the mirror port, and it seemded complex to set up, 
and looks like it is not bieng manitaned any more as  teh link
reference in it's man page is dead.

So I figure I can use wget to mirror the web sties I need to mirror.

I have it mostly working I'm suing something like:

wget -m -nH -r -o /var/log/${site}_mirror.log

But that gets the whole sit. What I want to do is just start at the
toop of the "ubuntu/dists" tree.

What am I doing wrong?
