My apologies for the troubles mirrors.fp.o was having earlier in the
week.  I think we've got them worked out now, but in the switch to
using mirrormanager to handle those, we encountered some
previously-unseen issues.  Of course, the crashes tend to happen
whilst I'm asleep...

and similar should work fine now.  The lines like:
http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/core-6-US-i386.txt do also work in
pinch.  They yield similar, but not necessarily the same, results.
The text files can't do client IP netblock lookups (e.g. direct you to
a mirror run by your ISP, University, or company), and they don't
provide the global list if your country doesn't have a local mirror or
if there are too-few mirrors in your country.

Please direct feedback about using anything on
mirrors.fedoraproject.org to the fedora-infrastructure-list.
