[opensuse] DOO mirror trouble debilitating
https://status.opensuse.org/ continues to report major outage. :-(

Can someone on 42.3 who is able to make zypper behave as expected using any
specific mirror rather than DOO post the content of their OSS and Non-OSS .repo
files from /etc/zypp/repos.d/ please?

I started an upgrade from 42.1 to 42.3 on my main system late yesterday. It got
almost done, then the mirrors went haywire.

NAICT, the immediate problem has its roots in the "type" line in each .repo
file. I saw something about this subject recently on one of the opensuse mailing
lists, but have no idea which list or what the context was, and can't remember
enough info for a search to find between zero and an infinite number of hits on
lists.opensuse.org.

Examining the content of these files, these are the possible types:

yast2
rpm-md
none

For some inexplicable reason, the OSS and Non-OSS repos seem to require a
different type than update or optional BS or Packman repos. All other repos host
a valid .repo file, but not OSS or Non-OSS. RPM reports no package owns these
files, so there's no way to find out what belongs in them. When after getting
timeouts trying to use DOO, I try to change to use a specific mirror, I get
these messages:
