It works like a normal "copy" command, except that one of the
files can be a remote one. scp will transparently open a
ssh remote shell (similar to telnet, just secure) and transport
the file's contents through the channel.

That may be an explicit mirror burdened with some cron job
delay. I'll check back tomorrow.

Sorry, my fault. The regression-logs directory did not have group
write permissions turned on. Now fixed. Please try again.
