    So, what you want to do is create a local mirror. You don't use zypper,
    YaST, or yum to accomplish this.

    Instead of selecting a tool and asking how to accomplish the goal using
    that tool, you would do better to start with the actual goal you're
    trying to accomplish (ie, setting up a local mirror of a group of
    repositories) than what tool you think you should be doing it.

    See http://catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#goal for why.
