fedora-release should use yum failovermethod=priority
Last modified: 2013-01-09 20:39:10 EST
Description of problem:
By default, yum uses failovermethod=roundrobin to achieve load balancing. As
soon as mirrormanager itself manages the mirrorlist and can return it in
priority order with internal sub-list randomization, fedora-release should put
failovermethod=priority into each [repository] section that also has a
mirrorlist= line pointing at mirrors.fedoraproject.org.
Coordinate with Matt Domsch as to when mirrormanager will return results in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm a bit confused, is this something I should do now, or do I need to wait for
something on the MirrorManager side?
wait for a new python-GeoIP to be released that exports country->continent
mapping, and for mirrormanager to make use of that. Then release a new fedora-
Going to mark this as needinfo until that gets done.
A new mirrormanager is in place that provides a priority-sorted list of mirror
servers. It's now time to change the fedora-release packages for FC6, F7, and
rawhide to add
into each [reponame] section of the /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora*.repo files.
This has been done.
