I'm submitting this as a bug in hope that we might want apt to use a
random ftp-site carrying debian when installing - instead of everyone
using the same host (ftp1.us.debian.org)
This will spread the load between all the ftp-servers on the mirrorlist.
Maybe there could even be provided a percentage to the different sites,
concerning how often that exactly host should be chosen (hereby
considering the different connection speeds the debian mirrors have
And/or maybe make the decision based on the domainname of localhost (e.g.
most .dk hosts should be directed to
I've thought about it before, but never got it to the lists before now.
So here goes :-))
