[Mageia-dev] mgarepo commit question

I have a package which I want to add in Mageia. My only problem is that the package is big, 123MB, and it would take ages to upload on a 400kbps available uplink
Is there some way I can make the mageia servers to download the source from the upstream proider, so I don't have to upload this huge file?

I notice that mgarepo have a "switch" tag available which "relocate to mirror or upstream repository". But there is no documentation on how I'm suppose to use it, that I can find.

I can tell you right now that if I can't figure out how to make the servers download sources from the upstream provider, I am not uploading or maintaning packages which are more than a few MB, as I don't have the available bandwith do do it.
