Hi there,
While I was thinking how to deploy an ArchLinux like distribution in 
enterprise, I pointed that the biggest problem is the management of the 
updates. I though it could be interesting if there is way system like:

Master ArchLinux repos → Enterprise repositories → Users, employees

When is there an update to the master repos, the update will be done in 
a testing repos in the enterprise repositories; Then, administrators can 
verify if there is no problem for compatibility with the deployed 
machines, and if is okay, update the main repository of the enterprise.

So my question is: is there a mechanism to do it automatically?
