Most places will have a transparent proxy with no additionnal Linux or
RH-specific setup. Instantmirror or rsync local mirrors assume the
infrastructure is designed around Fedora, when in fact Fedora installs
have often started unofficially bottom up. It is critical for Fedora
market penetration that those initial stealth installations go well
without someone bothering the IT teams with them (because their first
reaction will be to ban anything unofficial that gives them more work).

Therefore, efforts to create the perfect Fedora-specific mirroring setup
fall IMHO wide of the mark. A less-than-perfect system that works as-is
with existing infrastructure without any specific setup is much more
preferable.
