Thank you Jef.

I must say that this is a really big piece of shit! Maybe a simple yum update could have solved this problem for thousands of people!!!!!! Maybe?
It wont. Since you wont be able to get that update without the mirror list working.

If yum had a better mirrorlist selection algorithm, this issue would not
have appeared ;)

Mirror list selection is a server side infrastructure issue. Not something yum needs to manage on its own. The mirror list cgi files that were posted here are something FC6 has already implemented by default now. So you already get what you want at this point.

And if yum had a counter part to "apt-get update" the network load would
be less, which would make server overloads and DOS/QOS attacks less
successful.

yum update = apt-get update
