I installed Statler 2 on my office machine a couple of days ago, and the updates were excruciatingly slow (but browsing was fine). Apt-spy finally saved the day. Would Corenominal consider including this or an alternative as default after first install and also for system-upgrades?
Another choice would be netselect-apt
There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.
That'd be fine too. As long as there's some way of automatically picking the fastest mirror. It seems such an obvious thing, I wonder why all the distros don't have it. It's not like pinging the mirrors takes a lot of time.
Corenominal, you copy?
So, did you implement it yourself allready? How about finding a solution and providing us with a patch? I'm sure a feature request with some work done beforehand has a much higher chance.

The solution is to use apt-spy or netselect-app. There is no patch; its just a program.
Heres a thread about netselect-app:
