Yes, that's the only sane way to do it. yum-debug-dump /
yum-debug-restore will somewhat do the above, if the repo. has the old
versions available. However Fedora only has the latest, so the only real
alternative is creating a new repo. of somekind ... at which point you
might as well just do a local mirror.
