What is the status of mirroring yum? I have two machines (soon to be) with F9.

I would like to speed things up by hosting some form of mirroring on
my Centos5 box.

I am thinking Squid, but not sure if that's the best solution.

Des anyone have success stories? Squid or otherwise? Ideally I could
just set yum only to use a squid port, but yum doesn't seem to
directly support proxies, just indirectly via ENV variables.

I am open to suggestions.
