Today the list is available in the following formats:
- today's master source rfc822:
http://cvs.debian.org/webwml/webwml/english/mirror/Mirrors.masterlist (used
by d-i choose-mirror)
- YAML after http://teubr.eu.org/~spaillar/debian/qamirrors/Mirror-list-to-yaml.pl
back to rfc822 using http://teubr.eu.org/~spaillar/debian/qamirrors/yaml-to-mirror-list.pl

I saw that many apt-spy netslect-apt and others try to parse html produced on
the website...

PS: debian-mirrors@lists.debian.org can be used to discuss mirrors as well.
