I was thinking something like a third machine (or one of the already
connected PC's), gathering a list of needed updates from all of the
PC's, then download the packages needed, and serve them (over nfs for
example) to the other PC's to grab as needed.

I could do this with a bit of scripting, would it be a feasible
solution, or can anyone come up with something better ?

Fmirror will mirror the whole FTP sites. It wastes more bandwidth then just grabbing what you need but you only need to grab the stuff once. Then point to your local mirror.


Yes, I thought about that too, but as you point out, it's a bit too overkill to mirror all the repositories (I use quite a few from the build service as well)
