Re: Processed: destruction of round-robin functionality is fucking up our mirrors and making Debian suck for many people, hence fixing this is a release-critical "wish"

Sorry, I was actually re-reading the bug log without noticing that it was
no longer assigned to a package, rather it's now at the pseudo-package,
where the severity doesn't make all that much sense.
I've noticed that security.debian.org, which is composed of three hosts,
appears to be resolved by apts so that only one of them, steffani, gets
picked. I can't substantiate this with exact log evidence yet (there's an
outstanding RT ticket for that), but the system load on that machine is
consistently high and network speed low, whereas the other two machines
are practically idling in comparison.
I've also previously noticed that ftp.us.debian.org traffic seems to
concentrate too much on one host, too, ike.egr.msu.edu, but I've got even
less evidence there (that and other machines aren't under our control).
2. That which causes joy or happiness.
