Description Anssi Johansson 2012-10-27 22:43:07 UTC
Description of problem:

The URL contained in epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm points to a deprecated URL http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel

This also shows up on http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/repoview/epel-release.html as a link to download.fedora.redhat.com.

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


Steps to Reproduce:

1. yum info epel-release 
Actual results:

"URL : http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel"

Expected results:

"URL : http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/"

epel-release in EL5 uses http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel , that would be fine as well.
