foolist is just the mirrorlist for core as I pulled from the url in a
yum .repo file in fc5
the config file is for the python script and it is passed as the
argument to the script.
run it and it will output per-country and a global up to date mirrorlist
into whatever outputpath is defined as in the conf file.
I'll try to tidy this up further and get the cgi worked out for the
remote requests soon.
Updated it a bit more - nothing major - and I've uploaded it to here:
I've also updated the TODO's near the top of the script. If anyone wants
to work on those or has any ideas about them, let me know.
This isn't the end-all-be-all in mirror-checking but it does tell us if
AT LEAST the repomd.xml is synchronized to the mirror master on every
given mirror. I know this isn't a big deal but it's a reasonably good
metric as to how far off the mark a mirror is.
