Isn't that reasonable guarantee already the report_mirror data or
crawler acquired data?
Looking at current http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/7/
there are only very few countries for which non-global list is used
(unlike FC6 times):
Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Greece, Japan, Netherlands, Romania, USA
E.g. Czech Rep. used to be listed, but supposedly two of the mirrors
were kicked out for not being 100% up2date by the crawler and now we
have just 2 mirrors, both stable though.
