Is it possible to modiy yum in a way it does its work if one of the configured
repo is not availabe and only gives a warning - so you must not use
--disablerepo and get updates from all locations which are online without break

yum clean metadata && yum -y --enablerepo=updates-testing update 

primary.xml.gz            100% |=========================|  10 kB    00:00
[Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository:
freshrpms. Please verify its path and try again

This is unsafe behavior as it means a user could easily miss some updates. Not
to mention that dependency calculation would very much be off.

It's been discussed many times before and the answer is no, we won't implement it.
