What is yum*local?  Are you talking about yum updatelocal where I have 
the specific rpms local?  Why?  I have rsynced the WHOLE 
fedora/20/updates repo to a local server (over night via cron job) so I 
can update multiple systems.

But I have a repo that I rsynced?  Why do I need repomanage?  I looked 
at --help and did not see what this would do.

Meanwhile man yum.conf SEEMS to imply that I could:

failovermethod priority

the later so it will use my provided baseurl first and only go to 
mirrorlists if mine is not available (I am at a conference) or a 
specific package is not on my repo for some reason.
