Maybe he is a bit shy? I think he deserves a big Thanks for all the work he 
does for us :) (and isn't the only one)

I can confirm that mrepo does an excellent job on making a local mirror of 
wathever repo you wish. The only downside is, as I told before, that yum may 
end downloading and storing files you'll never need; but it is really easy to 
configure the server and you just need to modify the repos on the various 
clients to point to your server as it was just another mirror.

There is only a thing that doesn't seem to work correctly (at least for me): if 
I do "yum list groups" it shows only a few groups. Did I miss some option in 
configuration file?
