I am preparing an installation for a network with small subnetworks across the country.
As such, I am setting up a central repository, but would like the installation of some machines to turn themselves into mirrors at installation time (at least for their own rpms) to save bandwidth for the rest of the machines in their own sub network.

Is it somehow possible to set up a local mirror at installation time?

I was watching how anaconda is installing from a repository and saw that it erases each downloaded rpm as soon as it is installed, but thought maybe someone here would have an idea.

This would sound more like a target for a Fedora spin - that way you can configure it to do anything you want.

Also, with a local repository you could have your central site validate updates and then push them to the scattered repositories for following updates.
