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.
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.
I like this idea. I will work on implementing it after the new version of
mirrorselect goes stable. Thanks for the input!
