I guess you are confusing this part, Martin. Azure, like other cloud
providers (at least Amazon and Google), doesn't charge their users for
"Inbound data transfers
(i.e. data going into Azure data centers): Free"
So even if they use a mirror located outside Microsoft network, they
will not be paying more for it. This is not outgoing traffic.
Anyhow, I'm seeing a lot of "please read" or "read it again" answers,
which may indicate that we are repeating the same things over the
discussion. We can sumarize it answering the following questions:
Are there any mirrors which aren't public available located at a
"debian.net" or "debian.org" subdomain? If not, why should we make an
exception in this case? Otherwise, it will not be a problem adding
another one for Azure.
I like the "httpredir.debian.org" redirection as it will be
transparent, no matter what is the hostname of their mirror.
