Merge request

Reflector is already mentioned in mirrors, and this article just summarizes "reflector --help" or "man reflector") -- Thestinger 02:07, 26 March 2010 (EDT)

As reflector project has been discontinued but probably coming back really soon, this article is still useful, so I have pasted here the 1-year-old merge request by Thestinger: without discussions, merge and other requests are more likely to last forever...
My opinion is that, although this article is short, it shouldn't be merged with Mirrors, as they are two separate subjects, though strictly related. -- Kynikos 18:39, 25 March 2011 (EDT)
Ok, Thestinger removed the request. -- Kynikos 05:34, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
I would suggest you reconsider merging. What other uses are there for reflector other than to filter and sort the mirrorlist? Also, why is this article marked as stub? What else can we put here short of the whole reflector --help? -- Karol 14:00, 1 June 2011 (EDT)
I'm still against merging, as Reflector is only one of the possible methods to manage the mirrorlist; however, if Thestinger is still in favour of merging, I am in the minority and you could merge it, taking care of redirecting this article to the new section in Mirrors, since there are some articles that link to Reflector.
About the stub mark, I second your opinion. -- Kynikos 05:22, 2 June 2011 (EDT)
