Yea, I have this in cron (just the download part) so when I'm
ready to actually update, the packages are already there.

I even go one step farther and chroot to each of my other fedora
alternate boot filesystems and run the download for all of them
in the same cron job - that way the next time I happen to
boot one of the alternate systems, I can run update quick and
not have to wait for downloads.
