In addition, there is a yum plugin that may serve the same function:


yum-plugin-local



When this plugin is installed it will automatically copy all downloaded
packages to a repository on the local file system, and (re)build that
repository. This means that anything you've downloaded will always
exist, even if the original repo removes it (and can thus. be
reinstalled/downgraded/etc.).



Have just installed it.
