FAQ
I'm trying to update from the cr repo, but yum-plugin-fastestmirror gets
it totally wrong; it selects a mirror in .hk that deliveres bytes per second,
and as far as I can tell, most or all of the timedhosts.txt entries are
in the Middle or Far East. What's going on? Nobody mirroring cr in other
parts of the world?

    Dunno but in the release notes:

    "- Baseurl for the CR repo is set to only use centos.org internal
    machines, this is to reduce the amount of time we need to spend in
    seeding and then managing external mirrors."

    Doesn't that mean that it is not mirrored?

    When I log into one of our machines in the US and try it there,
    timedhosts.txt very definitely lists US mirrors; various .edu,
    kernel.org, and so on.

    it would be in the mirrors, but the baseurl is set to mirror.centos.org,
    and we dont serve up CR from mirrorlist.centos.org

    most machines would have base and updates and extras enabled, so you
    will see those being listed as mirror lists are handed out.

    open a bugreport at bugs.centos.org if you think the geoip lookup is
    getting it wrong ( include the ip you are connecting from ).

    Do you know how exactly geoip lookup is handled, and whether it changed
    recently? I just went to check my CentOS5 systems to prove there is a
    difference, and alas, they too now default to Asia :-/ This was not
    the case up to a few days ago. In fact, I just removed a good timedhosts.txt
    from two days ago, ran yum update, and found the same Asian hosts as on
    the CentOS6 box.

    its the maxmind geoip db - you should check there to make sure your IPs
    are being reported correctly.
