The geographical location of the servers in relation to the users
location is one thing, but the connectivity (bandwidth and quality of
connection) often differs remarkably. We often find that neighbouring
countries have little connectivity between each other, while both of
them might have decent connectivity (only) to central Europe (mostly
Germany) and the US.

suggestion on the out come it might be possible that our fellow hackers from
India may do also dfepend on these particular servers and by that the mirrors
are allowed to be in ASIA

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).

It might be interesting to use YaST/zypper as a vehicle for acquiring
this kind of information on an automatic basis. We could acquire and
collect quite some knowledge!

If somebody would like to work on this, let me know.
