[Ci-users] Network stability/reliability accessing external resources

I've heard that network connectivity for accessing resources outside
of the ci.centos.org infrastructure can sometimes be unreliable.
I haven't yet experienced this first hand as the jobs I'm constantly
monitoring and am responsible for have not yet been migrated there.

A lot of things can be put within the ci.centos.org infrastructure if
need be but it's unrealistic to have *every* resource there.

Is anyone aware of ongoing issues ? Should we report jobs that fail
due to network errors ?

A recent example is this job that failed due to DNS resolution errors
[1] "Could not resolve host: trunk.rdoproject.org; Name or service not
