Creating Own RPM Repository for openSUSE

There are multiple ways to create a custom RPM package repository in Linux. I was wondering if I could use just one online box to load the update packages on it and then distribute that to other Linux machines. This appears logical and straightforward as an idea. Well, in practise, it turns out equally simple. At the link below you can read a few ways (make sure you read the comments!) to do that.
The easiest (not tried, though) is to add a folder as a repository into Yast. Other ways are as easy, just different approaches depending on what you really want to do.
