* configure some kind of nfs sharing between all hosts
This works half well. Problem is that it is easy to delete the copy
by accident.

I see. I'm also a bit worried what will happen if 2 computers decides
to download the same file simultaneously.

No problem in that.

No, he is talking of "nfs rpm sharing", a method I invented, sort of. In
this setup two machines downloading the same rpm is a no-no.

Basically, the directory "/var/cache/zypp/packages" is shared directly by
several machines via NFS. Zypper assumes the directory is his and only
his, so we are tricking him. It.

Also, repositories are configured to keep the downloaded packages after installing them, which is not the default.

If one of the machines forgets this, all the packages are deleted and nothing is shared.
