Hi,

It has been reported to us that some jobs (not all of them) were
having issue[s] when trying to install packages from external
repositories.
It's actually difficult to know where the issue is located, but I'll
work on some tests (from the monitoring side) to verify the
connectivity with $Internet.

Those tests will cover:
- - dns resolution for a set of external hosts
- - icmp to a set of external hosts
- - http tests to a set of external hosts.

If your project/test[s] rely on some specific external repositories,
feel free to comment on that thread, and I'll add those in in the
monitoring.

Other solution would also be to have a local copy of those
repositories hosted *internally* to avoid saturating multiple times
the single (shared) link to the internet.
There would be no need to modify your scripts, as we can (through the
local dns resolver) makes it transparent and redirect that mirror to
the internally hosted one.

Kind Regards,
