Yuri, if I wanted an archive, I would mirror all stuff and use local repos. 
I went that route for a long time - it's a lot of work to keep up everywhere, 
and generates an awful amount of traffic (and I did it the sanest way possible 
- with a custom script, that was using rsync..)

Yes, updating 20 similar machines makes a significant difference with the 
squid as a deduplicated cache - with no recurring work at all.
