[Centos] Setting up a local yum repository for CentOS-3.1

Is there an approved procedure for setting up a local yum repository 
which has all the CentOS-3 patches (3.1 & 3.3)?  I don't want to have 2 
directories, just a single directory which has all the patches I need. 
I though the 3.3 directory would have these included but it seems not. 
If I manually upgrade to centos-release-3.3 (before installing all the 
3.1 patches) then I will not get any outstanding patches from 3.1, which 
  might be a problem.

As a side issue, is there any reasons for anyone not to upgrade to 3.3? 
and is running 3.1 still secure?

John.
