i have one build/repo-machine (virtual machine) which
as installed each package i am using on any machine

the script below results in having a complete repo
on /repo/cache/fc16/ or whatever release version there
is running and this can be copied to any other
machine and after create a rep-file at /etc/yum.repos.d/
used for updates

in my real work all other machines have only this repo
enabled and so my buildserver is also the instance for
testing updates and deploy them with another script
to any other machine in the network

[root@buildserver:/buildserver]$ cat
basearch=`uname -i`
releasever=`rpm -q --qf "%{version}
" fedora-release`
for g in `ls -1b /var/cache/yum`
if [ -d /var/cache/yum/$g/packages ]
echo "/var/cache/yum/$g/packages/ > /repo/cache/fc$releasever/"
sudo cp --verbose /var/cache/yum/$g/packages/*.rpm /repo/cache/fc$releasever/ 2> /dev/null
createrepo /repo/cache/fc$releasever/
chmod -R 755 /repo/cache/fc$releasever/
