    This method will not work in all cases (.edu, in Bulgaria the official
mirror is http://mirrors.evrocom.net /high .bg domain tax/). What about
using http://www.freenet.org.nz/python/ip2country/ip2country.py or similar
solution? Or make a 'worldmap' file that can be used by yum to determinate
the best mirror /f(MyIP, bandwidth, hops, rtt)/?

     BTW: how did you get this header, I mean your email inside?
