Should work in most cases.

Sometimes I do this.

But is easiest is to wait some days/weeks:

Betreff: fedora.us and Extras FC3 Status
Datum: Tue, 23 Nov 2004 17:25:04 -1000 
Enough people were confused about the situation, so I am making this 
interim anouncement.

download.fedora.us for FC3 will only replicate from 
download.fedora.redhat.com for convenience of apt users.  yum users 
should use official download.fedora.redhat.com mirrors which are twice 
as plentiful.

Currently the RPMS.extras directory is empty, because redhat's 
infrastructure for the Extras relaunch is not done yet.  We're *really* 
close now with build servers in the rack and CVS in configuration and 
heavy testing.  Lots of tweaking and labor still pending.   Don't ask 
for ETA.  If we have to answer questions, it will slow us down further.

Extras when built will be simultaneously available for i386 and x86_64 
(both supported FC3 archs) and distributed in 
download.fedora.redhat.com.  fedora.us will automatically replicate from 
those directories for apt users.

Details about CVS, contribution legal forms, governance, and development 
process & policies will be revealed when this relaunch happens.
