Default using mock like debootstrap

You can also do this:

# mkdir /mnt/test
# yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=fedora --disableplugins=*
--installroot=/mnt/test groupinstall Base

- this will fail -

# cp -a /var/cache/yum/fedora /mnt/test/var/cache/yum/
# yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=fedora --disableplugins=*
--installroot=/mnt/test groupinstall Base

and you have a small jail with a good start. Once you have the jail
with the package-set you like, tar it up for quick creation of new
jails later.

I think this is the closest thing to an equivalent of "debootstrap" in
