I'd been posting that link in the mdv forum for 1-2years, of course
old hands wouldn't read it (why would one read an article about
something he already knows).

Well, no, Only updates and Full set applies to both methods, the
MIRRORLIST and specific media mirrors. (IMHO, "updates only" should be
dropped, in reality a package in */updates may well require a package
from "release", also updates repos don't have the full range of
packages in */release).
