I think you'll find that we wouldnt have released it unless it had been 
tested ...

Why not - they are the same old mirrors - all that happens is that yum 
gets a lost of local up to date mirrors for the release/repo/arch from the 
mirrorlist server on port 81 - chosen solely so that we can run it on the same server 
as normal apache on port 80.

If you have fastestmirror plugin enabld yum will then test the mirrors and 
use the fastest local connection.

The version of yumex that we have at dev.centos.org alsouses the same 
mirrorlist system.
