Well, the way I set up my mirror is by rsync'ing the entire directory  
structure from one of the public mirrors.  What are the steps I would  
have to run to update my local mirror to include Johnny's RPMs?  I  
would also have to redo this update after every rsync.  And how will  
these kernels then be automatically installed if they are in the  
repo?  This does not seem to be that easy.

Any chance this will happen before next Wednesday?  That's when I'm  
planning to start my upgrades...
