I just realized that debmirror has a weakness in its design. Debmirror is designed to download the packages lists, selecting correct packages to be downloaded, then and only then, download the packages. However, the packages selection, is somewhat long and tedious. Even worse, there is no progress indicator to tell us how much time left for package selection process to start downloading those damn packages.
I wonder if I can modify it to make it faster.
