I understood what you meant, but my question is about the mirroring
infrastructure.  Personally I'd like to see dozens if not more 'ready
as installed' respins for different purposes.  If you have to push all
the base packages (or even a lot..) into the respin's specific update
repo as the only way to control what yum will do, won't that add a
huge burden to the repo mirroring infrastructure as all those copies
have to replicate?  Or if you look at it from the other direction,
could there be a better way of telling yum when to update a package
than keeping newer things out of all of the repository it uses?
