This makes sense when you are using one of a very few repositories..
As I've said before, doing the step-and-repeat to determine the most efficacious
sites for a number of repository becomes a combinational explosion as you
multiply it out.

I've been referred to my 'local" (aka here in Canada or northern USA) sites, but
the reality is that they only cover the 'core', not the kernel_Stable, the KDE5
or the additional photographic stuff.

And a simple script based around ping/traceroute tells me nothing about how the
server at the far end can actually deliver. One of those electrically distant
sites in Russia actually gives a better throughput than ones here in Canada!

"Well if you didn't use so many repositories, Anton ..."

yes, yea, yea, "A minimis incipe".
