I have an rsync'd locl mirror of Fedora on my main machine, an
apache/httpd server share of it, and all my other fedora machines use
the local mirror instead of going to the internet all the time.
I have a large filesystem mounted on /srv, and have a /srv/Fedora tree
that mirrors the TDS mirror.
I (g)rsync the mirrors about once a day.
My local httpd server is set up to serve these local copies at
Virtual machines and other test machines on my local net reference this
mirror all the time.
I am using a very similar setup, except that I mirror into a local ftp
server, which then is accessed by my local machines.
If you need specific setup details, just ask.
How did you
resolve the problem of the "upward repo" becoming
corrupt/out-of-sync/going in an inconsistent state?
 Background: I am locally mirroring a fast, nearby offical Fedora
mirror, which occasionally goes gets out-of-sync with the "Fedora master".
