Description

We need a few ones (3-5) to be put in a DNS round-robin pool that will serve as a fallback for downloads when JavaScript is disabled when visiting the download page on our website.

sajolida will give me a list of mirrors that are slower than 5.0MB/s, if I ask him in a week. From that I can proceed by elimination and hopefully there will be enough fast mirrors left. If not, then we'll need to decrease a bit the threshold, and if that's not enough we can still rely on #11079 to get us a few new fast mirrors.

sajolida: a dozen of our mirrors gave me more than 5 MB/s today, so I think you should bump the threshold above, e.g. to 8 or 10 MB/s, otherwise we'll have a too big list :) I'm doing more tests and will confirm later today what value I think you should use, but if you see this comment you can already go up to 8.

Bumped to 100MB, I want all the stats!

Added sajolida's stats to the blueprint, I will now retry some measurements and ask a few others to our friend who has a well-connected server in Germany, and then I should have enough data to pick a few mirrors from the list.

I've selected 5 of them on the blueprint ("Fast & reliable enough mirrors" section), so I think we're done here.
