Description Ernst Bachmann 2004-09-04 03:19:13 UTC
It would be great if one could specify a mirror type (ftp or http) when running mirrorselect.

Some firewall setups don't allow ftp, or, in my case, ftp traffic is routed over a seperate, high volume line, so I don't want to use http mirrors.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I will look into this for my next update.
unfortunately this might not be until after 2005.0

Thank you for your interest and the suggestion though :)

I have taken over maintainership of mirrorselect.
Comment 3 Colin Kingsley (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-06 01:47:33 UTC
I like this idea. I will work on implementing it after the new version of
mirrorselect goes stable. Thanks for the input!
