I think my first post was pretty clear, I have the packages, all install or 
update RPMs since initial install. I want to export that as a repo so I don't 
have to download them on every new machine. I have no trouble saving the 
pacakges, or creating a repo, but at FC12 the format of /var/cache/yum changed, 
and I need to find info on exporting the packages, since the process I used with 
FC9 lo longer works.

I already have a local repo, created by setting keepcache, but there's no doc I 
can find as to the trick in getting it *used*. Another way to create the local 
repo doesn't solve the problem.
