Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-12031) closer.cgi could have better defaults for unmatched country code (CC)
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2016 09:36:59 GMT
Sebb created INFRA-12031:
----------------------------

             Summary: closer.cgi could have better defaults for unmatched country code (CC)
                 Key: INFRA-12031
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-12031
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Mirrors
            Reporter: Sebb


At present if the GeoIP matching returns a country for which there are no mirrors, closer.cgi
returns the US/EU backups.

It might make more sense to return mirrors in the US and/or EU instead.

The US mirrors should have similar locality to the US backup, and the same would apply with
suitable choice of EU mirrors.

A more sophisticated algorithm could choose between US and EU based on the calculated CC,
but that might not be worth the effort unless there is already a suitable database for converting
the codes.
