How yum distro-sync command is related to availability of package in
software repositories? Packages are either there or not regardless of
command you issued locally to install/update them.

It's also worth noting that it might be important to have packages for
exact distro release because of changes in run time environment, build
system and other policies from one Fedora release to another. Package
from fc17 may work well in fc20 but I don't think it's encouraged behavior.
