[Mageia-dev] Mirror list for apps (LONG mail)

My main points in this - seen from the user's side:

1. If an automatic mirrorlist is used by urpmi there must be the
ability to jump to the next mirror if the first one is not available
or outdated. This was already requested some time ago in Mandriva and
Mageia should not start a mirrorlist system without this feature.

2. Whatever system is used, the user must have the option to select a
mirror if he wants to (like in SmartUrpmi). In short: there must be
the easy option to override the automatic system, like it is now with
Mandriva. Example: if the next mirror (selected by the mirrorlist
system) is too slow for the user's needs.
