[SOLVED] mirrorlist suggestion

On the old Arch mirrorlist, the comments all had two hashtags and the servers all had one hashtag. This made it very convenient to simply do a

sed -i s/#// mirrorlist

to strip the first hashtag and get a working mirrorlist. But the Arch32 mirrorlist has a single hashtag on the note about the .oss mirror and on the .oss mirror itself.

I'd like to request a second hashtag on the note and perhaps on the .oss entry as well. Then if you don't have opennic configured, stripping the first hashtag still yields an error free, working mirrorlist.

Re: [SOLVED] mirrorlist suggestion

I see, that two hash tags on comments are nice, I'll "implement" that. On the other hand, I don't think different mirrors should receive different amounts of hashtags - for other mirrors, there is also no guarantee/control that you can reach them (e.g. we don't check uptime of the mirrors (yet))
