Also mentioned at BUUG meeting 2013-01-03:
Though not "official" (yet?), quite cool and useful for,
e.g. most Debian Apt sources.list entries

"a new mirror redirector service, http.debian.net, that aims to reduce
the impact of occasionally offline or out-of-date mirrors, and to use
the worldwide network of mirrors more effectively. For now this service
is unofficial," ...


Alas, I've still got some catching up to do on reading earlier Debian
Project News mailings.  Which, by the way, is an excellent, and
relatively low volume (one per week, or less) list to read if one is
involved with or rather to quite interested in Debian.  If even that is
"too much", one may want to just subscribe to Debian Announce:
which is about a dozen emailings per year (if you're only going to
follow one of those, then Debian Announce is probably best).
