You can test for it by examining the cached metadata files below
/var/cache/yum/updates. Start with the timestamp on "cachecookie". Only if
old enough, Yum loads new metadata. [The default is 1800 seconds in
yum.conf's metadata_expire= value.] Compare timestamp of "repomd.xml" with
the mirror that is assigned to you (file "mirrorlist.txt". Recent Yum
versions ignore mirrors that offer repomd.xml files which are older than
what you've got in your cache. This way you can find mirrors which don't
sync daily.
