Description joshua 2012-08-20 18:07:31 EDT
Description of problem:

Kickstarting from a mirrorlist is fine... what if the machine is in Amsterdam, and my mirrorlist has mirrors in Amsterdam, Seattle, and Thailand... I'm often installing from Thailand.  This makes for a very long install, which is totally unneeded.

Can we get some optional logic added to anaconda such that it can be a little smarter with choosing mirrors?

Once yum-plugin-fastestmirror is included in the installation environment, we can enable it.
