Re: Yum, Proxy Cache Safety, Storage Backend

It sounds like you are using a transparent proxy. Just redirect mirrors.fedoraproject.org to localhost at another port and serve files so the mirrorlist URL's hand back a single mirror of your choosing.
Actually thats another way to handle the caching problem with most proxies
and static content servers. If you get

	http://....../....static.file?random-16-digits

apache and most web servers will discard the query bits and the cache won't
be able to decide if the content is the same ;)

 "most"? I'm guessing you don't mean that by number of web servers ...
maybe by "most commonly deployed". Others can/do 301 redirect you to the
actual URL, or 404, or...

Will all of them work correctly if you send 'Pragma: no-cache' or http 1.1 Cache-control: headers?
