Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2001-05-14 12:59:37 EDT
Hum, might be a bug in the libxml HTTP code, the client opens
a socket to one of the RDF servers (in this case the broken one at
asterix.crl.dec.com), but the server kills the connection before
the client has a chance to send the HTTP GET request.
this is an unfrequent server brokenness mishandled by libxml nanohttp
module :-\

I will try to fix it,

Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2001-07-25 13:43:14 EDT
The new version 1.7 will link by default with libxml2 instead of libxml,
the HTTP code of libxml2 received a number of patches, I hope this will
improve the quality of the HTTP implementation.
I also removed asterix.crl.dec.com from the list of metadata servers exported
from rpmfind.net, I hope that both changes will actually fix the problem.
