This is IMO miss-diagnosing the issue - the problem is not a failed
mirror - the problem is 404 on getting a metadata file from a mirror
that was updated because you have a stale repomd.xml file on your
local cache. Another mirror will not help there because it would
probably be updated as well.

You could also solve it by running 'yum clean' all the time but that
would severely slow things down.

The best solution is IMO to have our own "stable" mirror that _never_
changes while jobs are running.
