Vasile, admin of repo.fedoramd.org
, noticed two bugs in the mirrorlist
1) some users aren't being resolved by GeoIP. Turns out, we have two
different copies of the GeoIP.dat database on app3 and app4. I
want to update both to have this month's copy. We should also
figure out how to automate getting this file once a month and
publishing to our app servers.
2) If a user isn't resolved by GeoIP, they will be given the global
list, but without excluding mirrors who have an Exclusive Country
set (e.g. Vasile's server really only wants traffic from .md users,
but he sees global users). This requires a change to
mirrorlist_server.py trim_by_client_country() which I haven't made
yet, but will look into doing so. We should make this change to
provide better accurate clients to our mirrors to keep their
expenses down. I'll post the patch here for review before implementing.
