Hmm.   That idea is developing in my mind: use noclean, then have a cron job 
which moves any downloaded rpms to the repository and runs the thingy which 
creates the package listing.....  Could even be done from machines other than 
the main one (so if (eg) Peter updates his in some way, anything he's 
downloaded is moved to the repository directory on the main one)

I feel a scripting session coming on!

No such thing, nor ever will be by the look of it!


("Limited edition 2005"?   Surely simpler to have released 10.2 then made the 
naming/policy change!)

I'm unlikely to download the DVD version, actually: two machines here don't 
have DVD drives, and with one a laptop I'm not thinking of upgrading it!
