I am running rawhide and it always happens that updates come one day, 
and the corresponding debuginfo packages the next day. Actually I'm not 
sure if this is the case also in stable releases, but I though that was 
why the debuginfo symbols in various abrt bugs were mismatching. 
However, I didn't realize that the debuginfo packages were only updated 
via yum and not via PackageKit (as Michael mentioned before in this 
thread), so that is probably the more likely cause.

As far as the mirror is concerned: just using the mirror which yum picks 
for me, so I guess the answer is: pretty much any mirror.
