[Yum] Information about using groups

Yum 2.6.0

So, is there any way to have yum clients automatically remove a package
without running yum remove <package> on each system?  I'm trying to
setup a system where I can install, update, and remove packages from all
my systems from a central location.  I was hoping that if I configured
all my systems to groupupdate from a base group and then removed a
package from that group, all the systems would remove that package.  I
saw a mention of yum-queue back in 2004 but I can't find anything about
it after that.

Thanks for the quick response,
