Yup! :)

BTW, we've found a workable solution to the problem of yum being
unusably slow and memory hungry on the XO-1: if we disable by default
the fedora repositories, yum runs really quickly and does not download
too much metadata.

This command:

  yum --disablerepo fedora --disablerepo updates -y update

Runs in 27 seconds the first time, 4 seconds the second time.

If we add back all the rpms we ship to our custom repository, we could
do small system upgrades with yum in a relatively affordable way.
