Subject: Re: [devuan-dev] deb.devuan.org round-robin causing pain
Hi Olaf,

Just removed it. It was added there by mistake. The intention of the mirror,
AFAIU is to serve nz.deb.devuan.org and not deb.devuan.org besides its
canonical name.

BTW. Did you try the more regional country code round-robins? E.g.
jp.deb.devuan.org (guessing by your time zone) or some of the ones in EU?

With best regards,
