I got frustrated with having to edit my repo files every time an update 
came along to the release package, so I looked for "a better way".  What 
I found was 
http://www.gurulabs.com/goodies/YUM_automatic_local_mirror.php, which 
gave me the clues I needed to have my local repositories added to the 
mirror list dynamically.  I hacked the script a bit to make it work with 
CentOS and fit my situation a bit better, but it's written in Perl so it 
should not be too hard to figure out.

Once set up, all you need to do is point the DNS name 
mirrorlist.centos.org to your local server.  I've used manual /etc/hosts 
entries and DNS, both work just fine.  I've been using it for a couple 
of years now with good results.

As always, YMMV.
