[Bug 826225] New: Can not access non-U.S. repositories

Summary: Can not access non-U.S. repositories
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: All
OS/Version: openSUSE 12.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Many companies are now blocking servers located outside the US or registered
with non U.S. domains. This is causing problems accessing repositories for
example the opensuse science repository. We are able to unblock specific sites
but opensuse will randomly assign a mirror when updating or installing
packages. Would like to see an option that uses domestic mirrors only or at
least prefers those by default.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable a repository with non U.S. mirror such as opensuse science
2. Machine located on network which block non. U.S. sites
3. Choose a package to install for example 'spyder'
4. Attempt to install or update packages
5. Installation of packages fails when it tries to download from non-U.S. site
Actual Results:
Can not install package

Expected Results:
Expect to be able to install package

Note: if the foreign mirror site was predictable and does not change each time
package manager is used I would be able to work around this by requesting a
network policy exception, but since they change this is not possible.
