It shouldn't do if there's a mirrorlist entry, at least one that works.

See bugzilla bug #190405. (assuming you want a chuckle) I wouldn't trust kyum's repo parser if I was you. It doesn't parse them according to the documented file format (i.e. the manpage). For another chuckle, see bug #190886. Paul.
