I think I actually got the right file. The size of the original file should

implicitely assume all mirrors sites are trustable and are properly

protect the integrity of the file.



Might be more of a topic for the dev list. FYI I understand that once you install though, individual RPM packages are signed with a Fedora-specific key, so any packages you obtain from mirrors post-install are guaranteed to be authentic.
