Are people complaining?
I don't complain when it happens with my own computer that's
being updated daily... but it's painful when you update a
dozen of desktops in the office to F7 and all them want to
download 500MB worth of updates the first time they boot.

Yes, I could use a local Fedora mirror.  And, in fact,
I do.  But then I'd have to customize the yum config on
all clients to go look there.

You can add your local private mirror to mirrormanager, add a netblock
that covers your address space, and all your clients will then pull
from your local mirror rather than public mirrors, with no change on
the clients.


Matt, would you be interested in writing a updated mirror guide? The one at http://docs.fedoraproject.org is pretty outdated and we need to cover all the new configurations and features in the new mirror manager.
