I'd like to know details, but my expectation would be that Indian users
can not be served well by Russian mirrors; it would be quite surprising
to me. But it would be valuable to hear about first-hand experience from
India (and other countries).

I am from India, most of time, default got Japan server to get update,
which is very slow, so I 'always' manually change to US or Germany
(with new release of OS).

I am not hacker, but user/translator

The best would of course be to find a mirror in India. Maybe you know
some organizations that you could talk to and suggest that they set up a
mirror?

Failing that, we can give Indian users a similar treatment as others -
sending them to German or US mirrors. That would save you a manual
override. I have configured that now. If we add an Indian mirror later,
it'll automatically be preferred.

The mirrors I chose are:
Germany:
ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de
ftp.uni-bremen.de
ftp.uni-heidelberg.de
US:
rackspace.com
mirror.fastsoft.net

If you see some of them working not well for you, you could let me know and we
could refind later.

Thanks for the feedback!
Peter
