Description of problem:
It would be nice if firstboot proposed a list of mirrors for
yum/up2date instead of having everyone ending at redhat.com
Killer touch, would be to look at the national parms and preslect one
close to user's country.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. It is a request for enhancement
up2date already has built-in mirror support.
who is responsible for the quality of the mirror sync? The lack of
coordination is causing a huge time sink and tail-chasing for everybody.
Repository and mirror configuration is planned for FC5.
The yum repo config files have pointers to mirror lists. Additionally, pup will
handle these sorts of things once it's finished up.
