All the more reason to reduce the yum update process, if at all
possible. Via 28.8 it took about 4 hours before the mirrors settled down
on Friday night to where the yum process could proceed to do useful
work. I have not run an entire "update all" process since installing F7.
I can't, for all the mirror problems and/or the dnload failures and pure
slowness of the sqlite.gz business. Please presto that sucker and if
some sort of signal to yum indicating that the mirror isn't available or
sync'ed yet, for yum to jump past, that would be pure-eyed SWEET! We'd
have the best mechanism for install/updates available on the net. The
Debian camp could eat crow.
