Description Ali Akcaagac 2017-08-06 19:03:51 EDT
Recently one of our infrastructure systems (not related to Fedora) broke down because yum-deprecated, which we still depend and rely on for "reasons" had issues downloading the metadata.xml and repodata.xml files from RPMFusion.

I instantly went there and opened a bugreport about his issue because yum aborted with a "no timestamp" error message.

After some conversation with the admins and other participants, it was said that there was some changes in the infrastructure and mirrormanager etc...

Unfortunately this situation leaves us in a broken state because tools we rely and depend on are not working anymore.

Also the question about how LTS RHEL deals with that issue was thrown in the room.


Something needs to be fixed here... urgently...
