handle redirection to mirrors robustly
The proposal is to try other mirrors from a mirror list (from the redirector?) if an error occurs on some of the mirrors while providing a file from http/ftp repository. See the references for more details.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
- Paste "header=X-Broken-Mirrors" (without "") in ~/.aria2/aria2.conf. This should make the redirector to give you broken mirrors.
- In zypp.conf : give download.max_silent_tries times a positive value, for example 5. This value tells how often zypp tries to connect to the mirror.
- then try to install a package. You will never be able to download the file by testing this way, as the redirector will only give you broken mirrors.
