Package: netselect-apt
Description: speed tester for choosing a fast Debian mirror
 This package provides a utility that can choose the best Debian
 mirror by downloading the full mirror list and using netselect to
 find the fastest/closest one.

 It can output a sources.list(5) file that can be used with package
 management tools such as apt or aptitude.
