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.

Something needs to be fixed here... urgently...
This has been fixed in MirrorManager by reverting the change:
