By the way what I do is to rsync /var/cache/yum/updates/packages and the
corresponding packages for the other repos I use such as rpmfusion, fedora,
updates-testing etc. I don't rsync the metadata - that way the metadata gets
downloaded when yum runs, and then yum decides what is needed or not in the
way of downloads for the current system.
