Yum-utils package have some useful tools for sysadmins who wanted to create and manage their own RPM metadata repository.

Contents of yum-utils package
# rpm -ql yum-utils

Some notable tools
repomanage - helps you manage a repository by listing out old and/or new packages filenames
reposync - helps synchronizing local repository with an online Yum repository
repotrack - helps downloading dependencies of packages - https://lists.dulug.duke.edu/pipermail/yum-devel/2006-January/001796.html

I'll be posting a howto for creating a yum repository using these tools when I got some time to spare and my mind not filled with something else.
