Sharing Yum cache among various versions of Fedora running in VirtualBox/virt-manager and on dedicated partitions

asked 2014-07-20 10:43:08 -0500

I am seeking expert opinion (trying to correct myself) on if I have let's say Rawhide, Fedora+1 (eg. F21), etc. running on VirtualBox/virt-manager and/or dedicated partitions would it useful and feasible to centralize the cache to save my and Fedora servers bandwidth.

AFAIK package name are different in F20, F21, and Rawhide irrespective of their upstream version. And that would make those packages incompatible to each other. Is that right?

Secondly, keeping cache can be the best way to get back to latest state of a particular release channel but I am still wondering what to do about the older versions of same packages. I use yum-local-plugin.
