"One of the things that I like most about Fedora, is how simple
it makes managing infrastructure. While many Linux distributions
have multiple mirrors, if you run a lot of instances of that
distribution, it's nice to have a local mirror. For primary
mirrors, a lot of vendors have some "magic goo" to make things work
for them, but if you're an end user wanting to mirror the bits
locally, and use them, you're often left to your own devices.
"Fedora makes it easy to run a public mirror, and a local
private one, and gives you the means to do so easily, without
clumsy reconfiguration of all your local systems. Using the Fedora
Mirror Manager, you can set up a private mirror easily and have it
transparently, and without any reconfiguration necessary, be seen
and used by local Fedora systems."
