If you go to http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/repodata in your browser, then see the file: 882df121b85d85b1124d6e88478132807ab2587034b90b5e1591ceb76ab057e3-filelists.xml.gz
and click on it, I got a "not found":

Is there some way to retrieve content from D.OS.O and not a mirror when it seems the mirrors are not so reliable?
Unfortunately, I seem to be stuck on this bad mirror for the time being -- it will eventually go away, but until my mirror is updated, that file is no longer available.
How useful are the history links for previous releases, if a meta file from a few days ago is already gone?
There really needs to be some way for d.os.org to verify a mirror having specific content before blindly referring a user off to a dead location.
Isn't this possible?
