yum updates


I've just obsessed for about 2 hours over the setup of my yum 
repositories on my fedora 10 install. What was bothering me was that I 
would see e-mail notification of package updates, and then I would go 
off and run 'yum update' and have it report back that no updates were 
available. After the conocinal two hours of goofing around with my 
system, it looks like the fedora mirror system is not all that fast and 
that some sites have the updates, and others don't. In the past, my 
system would update with patches before they were announced on the 
fedora update mailing list. Is this slowdown something you any of the 
blu fedora 10 (or any fedora) users have been experiencing? Or is 
indeeded my fedora yum configuration messed up or something...

Thanks in advance.

Cheers. Steve.
