<drumroll>And the number 1 country with most RPM Fusion mirrors is: US
Six mirrors to be precise. FR gets the second place with only three mirrors.
And that were only public mirrors. There are likely private mirrors as well and
by taking this package we might bring the owners of those into trouble :-/
I'd really appreciate if a few contributors and mirror admins could
express their opinion on this issue. tia.
P.S.: For the complete history please see the bug.
