Depends on where you are located as to what mirrors are "good" but here
are some that work:

[development]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
baseurl=ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch
  ftp://ftp.net.usf.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch
  http://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/core/development/$basearch
  http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch
failovermethod=priority
gpgcheck=1

Pick some geographically close entries from the mirrors list at
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html and follow Michael
Stenner's advice from earlier in the thread about browsing to find the
correct URLs for the development directories (for your architecture)
with "headers" subdirectories present, then update yum.conf accordingly.

Note: If you omit "failovermethod=priority" yum will default to
roundrobin which randomly selects a url out of the list.  I suggest not
using download.fedora.redhat.com with roundrobin to avoid loading the
master server, or much worse, having it as the sole entry as another
responder suggested.  Another downside to the default value of
roundrobin is that the various repositories are nearly always in
different states of [un]sync due to the fast rate of release of updates
and different sync timing schemes.  This may result in dependency errors
that differ from one update attempt to another (more so than they do
anyway with the dynamics of FC2 development).
