Also, mirrorbrain only sends us isos. There are two possibilities for this. The first is that opensuse almost doesn't have package updates, differently from other distros. The second is that it's sending the packages directly to the clients, since they're much smaller. In this case it's quite bad since clients will have to pull from Europe, which is probably a lot slower than pulling from us.
You can just append "?mirrorlist" to a download link to see what mirrorbrain would do, e.g.:
Looking at that one, I do not see your mirror at all right now - this is something we should investigate. Darix, could you do so, please?
From here we appear at the top of the list, as it should be. This
shows that mirrorbrain knows we have the file. If we don't show up in your list at all it's not a database problem, it's in the selection algorithm...
