IPv6 problem with FedoraProject mirrors

I enabled ipv6 on a server recently and started getting errors from yum-cron intermittantly:

(Cron Daemon) root@myserver.corp.example.net Fri, Feb 25, 12:15 AM (9 days ago)

to root

/etc/cron.hourly/0yum-hourly.cron:

Could not get metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-7&arch=x86_64 error was
12: Timeout on https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-7&arch=x86_64: (28, ‘Operation timed out after 30001 milliseconds with 0 out of 0 bytes received’)

I think there is a problem with one or more of the ipv6 servers for mirror.fedoraproject.org.

AAAA mirror.fedoraproject.org is a multi-AAAA record entry probably to promote roundrobin load balancing. I hit it with curl a few tiems and sometimes get the timeout usually I don’t. I set up a loop to try yum cron every 10 seconds, and here we go:

r 140 at: Sun Mar 6 12:18:55 CST 2022

iter 148 at: Sun Mar 6 12:21:54 CST 2022

How do I get yum-cron to tell me more about why it timed out and show the actual IP that timed out?

I think this is essential to pinpoint which mirror is bad so I can reach out to them.

It’s 2604:1580:fe00:0:dead:beef:cafe:fed1

No response on port 80. Bueller?

Who do I report a downed mirror to?

Also, 67.219.144.68 is down.

Your best bet is probably to file an issue in the Infrastructure repository.

The ips are responding now, but I’d like to be able to check for issue and report if it’s not already reported next time I notice it. Can you authorize me to log into pagure? My login isn’t working. I emailed admin@ as well as the webpage indicated to do but I imagine that inbox is swamped.
