okay - I think I have it working more properly now.

Thank you for reporting this.

this is what it will do:

If you do not add &country=DE (or your country code) but there is no
specific set of mirrors that are current for your country then it will
return the global set of current mirrors.

if you do specify a country you want and there is no specific set of
mirrors then it will hand you back an empty file. This is for the people
who don't want to use bandwidth outside of their country for cost
reasons, proxy reasons, etc.
