Attempting to yum install or yum update MySQL on a host with only IPv6 connectivity results in a failure due to repo.mysql.com not having an AAAA record.

Some hosting providers provide discounts for IPv6 only virtual machines. These VM's would make perfect back end MySQL hosts if it weren't for the fact that one can't install or update mysql on these hosts without going through hoops.

How to repeat:
Attempt to yum install or update mysql on an IPv6 only host using the mysql yum repo.

Suggested fix:
Add an AAAA record to repo.mysql.com

Thanks for your report! 

Need to check status regarding IPv6 with CDN Team.
