[CentOS-mirror] Mirror Selections

The verbose option in the fastestmirror config?  That's not really going 
to help, ultimately the problem comes down to the fact that mirrors do 
not consistently show up in 
http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=i386&repo=os . We've 
noticed that when our mirror is available in that list, that clients 
choose it all the time.  When it's not in that list, fastestmirror can't 
possibly choose it.

Really, the only solution would seem to use MirrorManager.  Or, at the 
very least implement some type of GeoIP system for choosing what mirrors 
to return to a client. I just checked, and and I'm getting mirrors from 
Alaska and Hawaii even though I'm in New Jersey..

Does anyone know the status of MirrorManager?  Is that still something 
that's being worked on, or has it been shelved?
