Those are quite big mirrors, so I hardly believed my eyes. There were
several others I looked at, but I don't remember them.

I see this as a general thing. I think some mirrors I get sent to are
quite a bit behind D.O.O. When I view them in a browser, lots might
not be there. I admin this is more often the case when a new openSUSE
release comes out. But it is not limited to then.

Is there some sort of mirror quality indicator? Like using the ones
that have syncd with the repo within some time frame?

OOC, when running zypper, it lists the D.O.O URL, even though it is
getting things from a mirror. I sometimes find it hard to know which
mirror was the troublesome one. Perhaps I am missing something.

I wouldn't expect most mirrors to mirror all the home repositories thats
a huge amount of data, any mirror thats keeping all the official repos
up to date is more then enough.
