I do this all the time - in fact I update one F10 machine here and then
rsync the rpms to my other f10 machines locally - then yum -y update on any
of the other machines usually only has the odd additional update that yum
grabs from the repos externally - yum knows that if the rpm is already in
the cache it does not need to download it but if the correct rpm is not
there for a package it then looks in the defined repos - in other works yum
is much cleverer than you think!
