aj blogged about it here:


There was also some talk about this during the recent "Archive
architecture qualification" IRC discussion on #debian-tech[1]:

< Q_> aj: So what still needs to happen for the mirroring changes?
<aj> Q_: work out exactly what mirrors should do; tell mirrors
	what they should do; wait for mirrors to do that
<aj> Q_: there's already a reasonably easy script, it's more the
	issue of making it easy for people to find a (eg) m68k mirror
	when the country mirror only had i386 eg

There have also been ongoing discussions about optimizing
apt-ftparchive, but I am not sure whether this is part of the solution
as well.  Maybe aj can comment on that.
