So do you just keep cleaning your yum cache?

Right now my yum cache is @ 312 meg which if I
rsync'd the repo on the same machine I'd be doubling
for the same files, correct, 624 meg.
I also don't want the whole repo, just the
packages that I'm using.

Arrggg, just thought it would be simple, heck
just easier to keep all servers yum.conf's pointed to a Centos mirror.
