	Well until they do, you can solve the problem by expanding your baseurl
to include other mirrors.

	Just go to Fedoras mirror list at
http://fedora.redhat.com/Download/mirrors.html go to the section near
you geographically and copy them into your fedora-development.repo.  You
will need to add the suffix (everything after the /core/ in the url) and
do check I find that many of these mirrors are not operational.  Here is
a section of my .repo file for comparison:

[development]
name=Fedora Core - Development
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/os/
        ftp://limestone.uoregon.edu/fedora/development/$basearch/os
ftp://mirror.stanford.edu/pub/mirrors/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/os/
        http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/development/$basearch/os/
        ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/development/$basearch/os/
        http://mirror.web-ster.com/fedora/core/development/$basearch/os/
        ftp://mirror.web-ster.com/fedora/core/development/$basearch/os/
        http://fedora.cat.pdx.edu/linux/core/development/$basearch/os/
        ftp://fedora.cat.pdx.edu/linux/core/development/$basearch/os/

mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=rawhide&arch=$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Of course a Bugzilla wouldn't hurt either!
