  1. We actually do for all our production boxes (we’ve got a full mirror of epel, centos, rpmforge, etc internally). This was just a test vm guest on my desktop which I hadn’t fully configured to use all our yum repos. I’ve stuffed the updated varnish rpms (which are newer than what’s in the epel repo) into a local directory on the guest, created a local repo with createrepo, and also configured yum to use the rest of our yum repos, then its all good.
