Yeah, I would agree. +1 here too.
I looked around for the config for this in puppet the other day and didn't see it. Is it not puppetized?

> Hi guys,
> As detailed in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=656076 the
> pxelinux config used by boot.fedoraproject.org causes annoying
> repeated "retry" messages during BFO installs.
> The problem is that bfo/pxelinux.cfg/fedora_install.conf specifies
> 'method=http://download.fedoraproject.org/...' as a boot argument.
> This overrides the yum repo files that are used in the installer in
> Fedora 13 and later - so we don't get to use the normal mirrorlists.
> The fix is really easy. Just change
> bfo/pxelinux.cfg/fedora_install.conf as follows:
> For Fedora 13 and 14, change:
> append method=http://[...]/os/
> append stage2=http://[...]/os/images/install.img
> When you add Fedora 15 Alpha (or later), leave off the "append method"
> line altogether. (Fedora 15 has stage2 already inside the initrd.)
> This won't work for Fedora 12, but oh well.
> Hope this helps. Please contact me if you need any more info.
