--- Comment #20 from Marcus Rückert <mrueckert@xxxxxxxx> ---
(In reply to andreas bittner from comment #19)
Well race condition in what way ? Race condition with 1+ hour locking down

I didnt manage to fetch the metadata from today at 11oclock edition, and
barely managed to fetch the newer repodata at 15oclock.

The weird stuff is that the repodata is on fewer or on none of the mirrors
but the actual binaries of the releases themselves are already spread.

Why not going for a a very simple pointer. A single tiny file pointing to
the current and well spread revision of the actual main metadata(s).

and only when the newer metadata files are spread, then update this index
metadata tiny file as the last object on the main server. This would be the
most simple way to circumvent these hassles.

because this is not as simple as you think.
