Bug#805796: www.debian.org: please mention httpredir.d.o on mirror page(s)
When googling from italy for a list of debian mirrors the results
include https://www.debian.org/mirror/index.it.html which points to
I expect that similar queries from other countries can give similar
None of those pages mention the fact that there is now an official
redirector at http://httpredir.debian.org/ which can be used instead
of a local mirror.
While the installer currently suggests that mirror, users who are
updating an old installation have no way to know about it, and would
end up hardcoding a single mirror when the redirect would have
probably worked better for them.
I believe that adding a short note near the top of the page pointing
those users to http://httpredir.debian.org/ (or giving concise
instructions on how to use it) would be helpful.
Thanks in advance
