metalinks are definitely sometimes wrong.  For example, a repomd.xml
file for updates/10/x86_64 that updated at

-rw-r--r-- 1 263 mirrors     2391 Apr 24 19:35 repomd.xml

was not being reported in the metalink at

and I'm not yet sure why.  update-master-directory-list is running a
little more often than twice an hour on average, and the mirrorlist
cache is updating every hour as expected.  So the data is either not
getting picked up during u-m-d-l runs, or is somehow not getting from
the DB into the mirrorlist cache.

If you see me monkey with u-m-d-l on bapp1, that's what I'm trying to
figure out...
