Maybe my question was not clear: the problem is that the install (when
doing a virt-install with boot.iso) does not choose a mirror at all.
It just requires that you *explicitly* specify an install URL and it
shows an error for "Installation Source" till you have done so.

It works ok if you add (via virt-install's --extra-args) inst.repo
and/or use a kickstart file (inst.ks) with an "url" directive.
