I'm thinking of making several example yum.conf after this model: http://www.fedorafaq.org/faq/samples/yum.conf

Because of the great load on the most used mirrors I thought it would be a good idea to make several configurations like the above, and then let users choose their continent/area and download one which contain mirrors for their continent, area or country. This way the load on the mirrors will decrease, and people will get faster downloads.

So people, please post your yum.conf examples that match the one above, make sure you include your contintent, area and country. Thanks.

Here's my configuration file, optimised to use Norwegian mirrors where possible. Since the fedora.us mirrors already were europian, I only editied the base, debug, updates and updates testing parts. (If you edit other parts, include them.)

Yum sucks. Apt rules.

Somewhat optimised, with a lot of repositories, some commented out.

I changed the core and update mirrors, and added livna, freshrpms, fedora-extras, flash plugin, dries, Jpackage, and xfce4.
