>From birds eye view level i just thought when the update goes on if the
plugin is enabled it makes a copy of the RPMs which gets downloaded in an
other directory and then probably have a front end application which by
default picks up the RPMs from that directory and writes on to the CD.
This is my initial thoughts on it though i am not sure this would work and
satisfy the requirement. i am looking into it on how it could be done too.
