> updates populates the cache which the files the others will need, but I
> haven't looked into this enough to see if there's even a way that works.
> How do you all keep a dozen or more Linux boxes updated?
install yum-utils and use reposync to create local mirror with only newest

Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit
eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius
quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui
sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera
gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas
humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi,
qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.
