Which is in turn sending requests to

The new app should print out mirrors in the same format but instead of being a static list of mirrors it should use the results of mirrorchecker to drop stale ones.


We can also back up by using the static mirror list in case mirrorchecker is unavailable or reports everything as stale:;a=blob;f=configs/mirrors.txt;h=cd5760ce765fbb9e3c25f07ced538c231439dc04;hb=refs/heads/master

We’d likely also want to always retain regardless of what mirrorchecker tells us. WDYT?
