Description Ewoud Kohl van Wijngaarden 2014-05-13 14:22:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently there is only a single server that can serve the oVirt yum repositories. This can be especially painful for users on the other side of the world. In http://lists.ovirt.org/pipermail/infra/2014-May/006280.html Eyal mentioned there already are some mirrors, but there is no way for users to see them. Let alone, automatically select the best mirror.

Luckily yum supports mirrorlist which should be as simple as dropping a static file in the correct place with one URL per line. That should allow yum to select the best mirror for the user.

I see Kiril created mirrorlist-ovirt-3.4-fc19 and mirrorlist-ovirt-3.4-fc20. I also added mirrorlist-ovirt-3.4-el6 to it.
