Hi Ralf,

Are there any brief HOWTOs for setting up local Fedora mirrors that you
could point us towards?  Or, if not, perhaps some advice that you could
put on a wiki page on how you speed up mock builds?  I'd be grateful and
I'm sure other people would, too!

Also, I know some folks are using local squid proxies to amortize the
package download costs over multiple mock builds.  Any thoughts on what
would be the easiest/quickest/most-efficient-for-local-storage setup?
