What I'd like to see is some sort of yum-proxy to save bandwidth for

back; otherwise download it from the web, send it over, and put it in
the cache; now and then check if a package is still in the upstream
repos; if not, drop it from the cache.

Even better would be the use of mDNS and DNS-SD to search for such a
proxy. This way, you don't need to hardcode anything in configuration
files.

FYI: http://freshmeat.net/projects/apt-zeroconf/


Instead of a proxy, one could also use DNS-SD to implement something
closer to the P2P model, where machines on a local network search for
any neighbour systems that have already downloaded updates, basically
sharing the yum cache.
