I'm afraid this package can't be included. Awaiting Legal team.
Comment 2 Mosaab Alzoubi 2014-02-15 05:20:54 EST
I hope to make all roads available :)


- Add updates and rawhide repos.
- All repos disabled by default.

Has this been discussed any agreed on anywhere prior to this review request?

IMHO, and if at all, what this package does should be done as a subpackage of the fedora-release src.rpm.
Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2014-02-15 17:29:16 EST
I don't see the point of this package... 

By default fedora-release already uses a https metalink. (which is actually better than a https baseurl). 

Additionally, are the master mirrors. We don't want all our users to go directly to them or it will cause them to get too much load and be unable to answer. 

Can you explain what you are trying to do and perhaps we can figure out a better way to do it.
Comment 5 Mosaab Alzoubi 2014-02-16 05:15:57 EST
Thank you guys.

Some stubid proxies in some countries forbide any URL that use (proxy) word.
In https URLs they can't detect this.

This package is optional only, so it isn't load much.

That will be better if this package included into fedora-release.

> This package is optional only, so it isn't load much.

As noted in comment 6 it's not allowed by guidelines. ;)

You might close this and open a bug against fedora-release with what you need?
