To try and get an issue with a mirror fixed, you'll have to try and
contact the mirror maintainer directly, as mirrors are not under
Fedora's control/direction/guidance - they're entirely independent
operations which just mirror our stuff out of the kindness of their
hearts. Fedora has no mechanism to exert any kind of control/supervision
over them. If you file a bug against Fedora for a mirror issue, the best
that will happen is someone will read it and try to contact the mirror
operator, so you may as well cut out the middleman.

If a mirror has significant issues that affect all or most Fedora users
who hit it, and the mirror admin does not seem willing or able to
address them, then you might want to talk to the relevant team about
having that mirror taken off the Fedora mirror lists so it doesn't cause
problems. But that's the last resort, and you should only do that after
putting in a bona fide effort to have the issues resolved first.
