Yeah, this is because that url points to just a link on our master
mirrors to help folks install the latest version of that package.

Where did you get the download.fedoraproject.org url for it?

You can use:


which will use the master mirrors for it.

As for fixing it on AWS, I suppose we could add some logic to our
mirroring to also copy up the latest epel-release version as that
'latest' link. We should make sure it auto updates though so we aren't
publishing a stale package.

Ricky: can you look into adding that to the existing sync script?
