            Bug ID: 27531
           Summary: Support retry of failed downloads
           Product: elfutils
           Version: unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: debuginfod
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: sergiodj at sergiodj dot net

  Target Milestone: ---

While running Debian's debuginfod service, I have received a bunch of
complaints from people who are living far from where the server is located
(Europe) and are getting a few timeouts when GDB attempts to download the
debuginfo files.

It would be nice if we could configure debuginfod-client to retry N times
before giving up.  I thought about opening this bug against GDB, but I think it
makes more sense to implement this in the debuginfod client itself so that
everyone can benefit from it.
