If it understands the concept of mirrors, than yes, it is exactly as I
envisioned it :)

I just packaged it and you can provide it with a list of mirrors although
it could have handled it transparantly instead of requiring a list

You can find a temporary package here:


but it will be available soon on the mirrors. Even though it is tagged
el5, it should work fine on EL4 or EL3.

Let me know if you have any problems.
