You don't need the SRPMS.

If you want to maintain a local repository to share locally (like in an 
office or a classroom), please look at Yam. I'm a few hours away from 
making a new release and need people to test :)

Go to:


Download the latest Yam (to be released as 0.5) using:

	svn co http://svn.rpmforge.net/svn/trunk/tools/yam/

And look at the example configfile and documentation.

You can mirror repositories and add your own custom packages and let Yam 
build repositories and merge all that to ease installation.

If you need a graphical frontend to browse these packages, take a look at 
synaptic (apt-based) or yumgui (yum-based).

If you have problems with Yam, please let me know, I can help you 
out and refine the documentation.
