I do this all the time - in fact I update one F10 machine here and then
rsync the rpms to my other f10 machines locally - then yum -y update on
any of the other machines usually only has the odd additional update that
yum grabs from the repos externally - yum knows that if the rpm is already
in the cache it does not need to download it but if the correct rpm is not
there for a package it then looks in the defined repos - in other works
yum is much cleverer than you think!
By the way what I do is to rsync /var/cache/yum/updates/packages and the
corresponding packages for the other repos I use such as rpmfusion, fedora,
updates-testing etc. I don't rsync the metadata - that way the metadata gets
downloaded when yum runs, and then yum decides what is needed or not in the
way of downloads for the current system.
