Is there any benefit to listing official mirrors on this page? The links are not helpful due to the $repo variable, and the ''official'' list is regularly updated. Rather, I suggest we direct users to install the latest version of {{Pkg|pacman-mirrorlist}} and edit {{ic|/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist}}.

: If we want people to find the mirrorlist through the wiki, we may as well refer to http://repos.archlinux.org/wsvn/packages/pacman-mirrorlist/repos/core-i686/mirrorlist in the article...

: I would say there is a definate _non_ benefit to listing - that is, someone has to maintain this separately.  As seen from http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18151 - which is where the estonian mirror was removed - there is a process for taking care of the mirror in the pacman process, but not here.  I removed the estonian mirror (which _was_ my primary) after it was removed; they no longer are mirroring so errors occur.  I checked why, and found the bug report, and also that we list _here_ that it's still up.  _I don't want to do this regularly_ [[User:Lastebil|Lastebil]] 03:31, 4 May 2010 (EDT)
