It's definitely different target.

I already implement something similar myself - though I just use http 
rather than nfs - but I enjoyed that entry.

Local mirrors not only make updating easier, but they make mock run a 
LOT faster when creating packages for a private local repo ...

My private repo keeps getting smaller as more and more stuff is finding 
it's way into EPEL - but it's a nice place for me to store commercial 
fonts and stuff that can't be in EPEL because it (shame on me) updates 
vendor packages.

Anyway, these kinds of tutorials are very useful in the wiki, I'm glad 
people are contributing them.
