[CentOS-mirror] VPS as mirrors

nowadays we and i believe many other ppl are using VPS as mirrors. But
there is a little problem with fastest mirror plugin. OpenVZ delays first
ping to 100-300ms, all other pings are ok, so average is quite a big, and
fastest mirror plugin selects mirror incorrectly.

i propose to skip 2-3 maximum ping results and then average to determine
best mirror. This will prevent selecting wrong mirror if mirror sits on

Any opinions?
