In 11.1 the mirror is chosen by the redirector, which tries to give the
fastest one but this is not always true.

ok, that's what i'm seeing.

openSUSE Factory(what will be 11.2) uses metalinks, and also supports
mirror profiling, that is, it can record the perfomance of mirrors for
your specific case and feed that information on the next download,
complementing the information the download redirector gives to you.

Also 11.2 (Factory) has robust mirror failover.

i knew abt the metalinks & failover, but not the profiling. that'll help.

will that failover trigger only on no_connect, or also on
user-definable (e.g. min DL speed) performance threshhold?

&, can 11.2/Factory's zypp/aria2c/etc be _safely_ installed on 11.1,
or are dependencies an issue?
