Description R P Herrold 2005-02-27 06:34:47 UTC
Two Items:

1. With the split of RawHide SRPMS, a stable permanent URL to mirror 'extras'
from is needed.  Without one, the exterior mirror system administrators will be
required to follow the 'every six months' shifting of the then current 'FE' URL
to SRPMS.  Already, I note that iBiblio does not have the ./extras/ tree and so
all the former extras RawHide SRPMS are unavailable to users of that mirror.

It is obviously in the interest of the Fedora folks, and the Red Hat bandwidth
conservators to have as many current mirrors as possible to encourage mirror use.

Please add a permanent mirror target URL of:


a hardlink of the volitile location is doable, and has the effect of permitting
one change one place to avoid dozens of changes on lots of places in the mirror

2.  Please add a 'distribution' component to 'extras' to provide a a target
Bugzilla filing point for matters related to that variant.  Properly this bug
should be there. but the Bugzilla Component does not exist.

Not sure what you mean by #1; an extras/development dir already exists, although
it isn't populated.

Will work on #2.
