Description (last modified by jessicah)

I've placed a simple csv onto our "central" haikuports repository with a listing of known / trusted mirrors.

Proposed Format:

country,city,mirror provider,mirror provider website,mirror location

I just used the information SourceForge provided about mirrors years ago as a template. Let me know if anyone has alternate ideas/changes/additions.

Ubuntu / Debian used to (and still do?) have a tool to show the "fastest mirror provider" to your location. At minimum though we might just want to "give users a choice"

We already have the app to manage repositories... maybe it could check the "original repository" for a mirrors file and provide the user some options to use?

Description: modified (diff)

Added .txt extension to URL, so it displays in browser rather than being downloaded automatically.

I'm only getting about 160Kbyte/sec from the repository. I was hoping I could switch to a faster mirror, and through Googling discovered mirrors.txt, but evidently is not current, and does not resolve.
