AFAIK, there's no way to set priority on the mirrors that are defined in the
Let us assume that we have two mirrors listed in the sources.list file.
Eg: a local apt-proxy and ftp.us.debian.org
It is obvious that apt-proxy is faster than f.u.d.o.
What I'd want is that apt first tries to first try m.k.o and if not found
there, or if the host doesn't respond, moves to f.u.d.o to get the package.
Is there any pinning setting that we can set on the mirrors?
Does apt support threaded download? If I have multiple mirrors, can apt be
able to download multiple packages simultaneously from multiple mirrors at
the same time?
Currently I see that happening only with security.debian.org and one of the
many mirrors listed in sources.list
