  I also think its bad i dont use yum directly much  but i do use up2date  
which would need an update as well.  but the first thing i do is point 
up2date sources to the closest mirror. so if you do get an update for yum 
aand up2date  and you get it to overide my settings ill be mad.  what would 
be nice is a script to add to apt, yum and up2date the neccesary repositories  
for fedoralegacy.  with options to setup to the closest mirror.  

Which brings me to something ive been thinking about for awhile  a dns system 
for mirrors  setup master mirror  and have mirrors mirror from there  or just 
go from cuurent master sites  but get them to be consitent with what they 
mirror where  i have a domain for it  fedoramirror.net  im in Australia  so i 
could go with a tree like this  

server  au.fedoramirror.net
/pub/fedora/core/<version>/RPMS/<arch>
/pub/fedora/core/<version>/SRPMS/
/pub/fedora/extras/<version>/RPMS/<arch>
/pub/fedora/extras/<version>/SRPMS/
/pub/fedora/legacy/<version>/RPMS/<arch>
/pub/fedora/legacy/<version>/SRPMS/
/pub/fedora/addons/freshrpms/<version>/RPMS/<arch>
/pub/fedora/addons/freshrpms/<version>/SRPMS/
/pub/fedora/addons/livna/<version>/RPMS/<arch>
/pub/fedora/addons/livna/<version>/SRPMS/
/pub/fedora/addons/dag/<version>/RPMS/<arch>
/pub/fedora/addons/dag/<version>/SRPMS/

something like that  say theres a mirror in boston  we could provide dns of 
ma.us.fedoramirror.net

that way users would be able to use a consistent naming scheme 
mirrors could leave off addons  or parts of addons  or extras or legacy  as 
they wanted  but prefferablly  they would have all the rpms  and maybe srpms.

well its an idea

Dennis

p.s  ill have to propose this in a few other places as well  but please email 
me your ideas.
