Bug#989473: choose-mirror: switch mirror list from salsa to mirror-master

Package: choose-mirror
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-Cc: weasel@debian.org

Filing this on behalf of Peter Palfrader who suggested we switched from
the manually curated mirror list hosted on salsa[1] to I suppose a live
one published on mirror-master[2], that would be more representative of
the current state of mirrors when release time approaches.

 1. https://salsa.debian.org/mirror-team/masterlist/raw/master/Mirrors.masterlist
 2. https://mirror-master.debian.org/status/Mirrors.masterlist

Having attempted that, I'm not comfortable updating choose-mirror with
this change right now, as that would mean shuffling all entries.

A quick brainstorming on IRC resulted in what appeared to be a good idea
to everyone involved: the list might be random, but let's make sure we
show deb.d.o at the top (default entry anyway), followed by ftp.CC.d.o
(if there's such an entry for the given country).

Happy to take opinions, and possibly patches for that. :)

The trivial change to apply before running `make Mirrors.masterlist` is
in the Makefile:
