What can we do to make this happen? Is this the type of thing that's
easier for the maintainer of MirrorManager to add, or should we supply
a patch?

It would be best to open a dialog with Matt Domsch about this (:

I replied on fedora-infrastructure-list just a bit ago.  I'm happy to
see this functionality get added to mirrormanager, and am happy to
review patches as well. :-)  The trick will be having a python module
that, given a list of URL/country tuples, generates the XML pages.
Which probably isn't that hard, really.


File attached :-)

My Python skills suck, so feel free to improve it. It doesn't implement all fields in the MetaLink specification, but it should do the job.

    This module creates a metalink file from a list of urls
    Author: ruben fedoraproject org
    License: GPL

    Metalink, an Open Standard, makes downloading easier by
    bundling the various ways (FTP/HTTP/P2P) to get files into
    one format for easier downloads, as well as bundling
    checksums to automatically verify completed downloads.
    Currently the following applications support this file:

  - aria2 (Unix) [ http://aria2.sourceforge.net/ ]
  - GetRight 6 (Windows) [ http://www.getright.com/ ]
  - Speed Download (Mac) [ http://www.yazsoft.com/ ]
  - wxDownload Fast (All)[ http://dfast.sourceforge.net/ ]
