ok, then you want option a) from my previous response.  if you're the  
gatekeeper of all packages that go into your private repository, and  
if your systems aren't pulling packages from any other repos, then i  
would think that would give you the necessary degree of control.

you may find Dag's mrepo tool (http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/mrepo/)  
useful for building this infrastructure.


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an  
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
