The only problem I have with updating the original mirror lists is that
the mirrors are not always out of sync. sometimes they're only out of
sync for a day or so. So fixing them would mean having to put back the
broken mirror later if it suddenly resynchronized.

Now, if I got the time I wouldn't mind putting all the mirror results in
a little database and tracking them over time. so that mirrors that are
in sync the majority of the time don't get checked as often or some such
thing.

97% is much better than what we had before :)

the code is checked into /cvs/fedora/check-mirrors if you want to see if
there are other ways of doing it.
