Haha, thank you - I see now.

OK, I know I should read the header but I usually jump directly to the
country nearest to me using the Ctrl-F.

IMHO the header is quite easy to miss, could it be done in bold text or
other colour so it would be more visible? Just my 2 cents.

Another idea could be to rewrite the mirrors page with some selectors like

-> Choose you country: [drop-down with list of coutries]
-> [ ] Show mirrors with 'altarch' repositories


and you will get a filtered list.

Something like that.
