mrepo: yum/apt repository mirroring

dag wieersJust thought I'd mention this as this is the first time I ran into this...

On Oracle Linux, just as on Fedora, CentOS and Red Hat, you usually install software using either up2date (blah) or yum (much better). However, setting up a local mirror for network installs or local updates, is somewhat daunting. Especially when used to the comfortable ease of Debian-based distos as they have all sources available for free on the net. Therefore it nice to know that some dedicated fellows like Dag Wieers use their time to make life a little easier for you. With tools like mrepo: yum/apt repository mirroring (formerly known as 'yam').

I haven't played with this yet, but I'm gonna look into it for sure!
