Nice solution.

But as a side note to that: I in fact had a local update mirror for Core
in the past, but with the Core and Extras merge I don't have one, as the
space and download requirements drastically increased. So much that
having a local mirror is not worth the trouble if you don't have more
then 10 (?) machines with Fedora afaics. So in this regard the merge
made things worse for me.

What I'd like to have these days is a kind transparent apt-proxy (
http://apt-proxy.sourceforge.net/ ) for yum, that keeps packages in a cache.

Sure, squid can help with that, but a more intelligent solution (package
still in the repo? only one ppc machine in the network, so don't cache
ppc download, ...; package part of standard-install, so keep in in the
cache if possible) could do a whole lot better.
