Re: Fedora Core 3

In my experience, some mirrors pick up debug rpms and less used architectures, some don't, and some are a day or so behind the main sites. Rotating the complete mirror list (that exists today) will cause people to see things like the second of two sequential yum commands issued from the same machine failing because the second dns lookup might return an older archive, or an archive that doesn't have certain deps that the previous one did, etc.

So if someone does this, maybe there ought to be clear standards about what mirrors must do to go into the rotating list.
