The most efficient way is probably to find a Fedora mirror that supports
rsync access and use rsync to keep a copy of the directories you're
interested in.

I do it the old-fashioned way, using the program "mirror", which is
designed for keeping a copy of (part of) a remote ftp site using only
the ftp protocol. Mirror isn't really maintained any more but it does
the job. Homepage is at
ftp://sunsite.org.uk/old-sunsite/mirror/index.html and I have an RPM
available at:
http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/sysutils/Mirroring/mirror-2.9-13.noarch.rpm

I set up mirror to keep a local copy of the FC2 updates directory (this
includes the yum headers) and run the mirror job using cron every night.
