Related to this, I think it'd be useful to target public IaaS (AWS, GCE, etc.)
for inside-infra mirrors. Basically we want Fedora images to hit a S3 bucket in
the region or equivalent by default for content. This is how Amazon configures
It seems like the kind of thing that we could ask Red Hat for sponsorship.
This already happens for EPEL:
$ curl -s
| head -2
# repo = epel-7 arch = x86_64 Using preferred netblock Using Internet2 country = US
country = CA
We are currently syncing EPEL to the following S3 regions:
s3-mirror-us-east-1 s3-mirror-us-west-1 s3-mirror-us-west-2 s3-mirror-eu-west-1
So, it sounds doable for an additional target (like docker images).
