Description Matt Domsch 2007-06-11 09:57:34 EDT
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
priority order.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

mapping, and for mirrormanager to make use of that.  Then release a new fedora-

Going to mark this as needinfo until that gets done.
Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2007-09-14 13:22:00 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2007-09-14 13:43:51 EDT
This has been done.
