Something as simple as this:

# rsync -av ftp://SERVER/PATH/ /local/updates/

can be run from cron once or twice a day. Then you automatically have
*all* updates for that Fedora version on one box, downloaded exactly
once. And rsync will keep that directory updated for you.

Then you either NFS-export that directory to each machine, and tell
up2date to use the "dir" option to get its updates from a local
directory, or you make that directory a yum repository (very easy) and
point all your machines to it.

The tools are all there. Should take 5-10 minutes to set the whole thing
up. I have previously posted the scripts I used to run a full Red Hat
mirror; modifying those to easily mirror one or two updates directories
(i.e. FC1/updates and FC2/updates) is trivial. See:
