Description Denis Silakov 2015-08-16 11:59:03 MSD
(this bug was created to resolve remaining issues from bug 2525).

Currently urpmi selects the mirror to be used on the basis of its geographical location. It would be better to select the fastest mirror instead. In addition, it can be useful to be able to replace mirror on the fly if it suddenly becomes offline or its speed becomes too low.
