[CentOS] Local mirroring of the CentOS repos

I figured I try if I can mirror the base and updates repos locally.
There's no tutorial for that, only one about creating your own repo of
packages which is not the same. So, I just mirrored all the stuff with
wget and changed the baseurl in the repo files and hoped that's enough.
Works. So easy you don't need a tutorial.
*But* I then realized that the updates directory contains *all* updates,
not just the latest. Which means if I don't regularly check I may get old
versions mirrored I don't want. It also means that I get a lot of unwanted
files at the time I start to mirror. And I cannot delete old files as
these would again be mirrored in.
An obvious solution would be to check each day and tell wget (or whatever
software I use) to ignore files older than 24 hours. Still, this means the
initial download has to get them all and I have to delete all unwanted old
Is there a better solution?
