Description

[As discussed with Garrett earlier this week on IRC]
We need a "faster" mirror for illumos-gate which has better performance (e.g. bandwidth and latency , for me in Europe the latency is around ~~600ms while for hg.genunix.org it's below ~~200ms) with anonymous ssh access (since http access is slower and is (as others pointed out) even more latency-sensitive).

Roland Mainz, there is illumos-gate in bitbucket.org
http://bitbucket.org/illumos/illumos-gate

bitbucket and hg.openindiana.org are not much of an improvement. AFAIK there may be two reasons (or a combination):
- Both http://bitbucket.org/illumos/illumos-gate and http://hg.openindiana.org/illumos-gate/ seem only to support hg over http transport which is significantly slower than hg over ssh (at least the mercurial people strongly recommend "... ssh as transport because using http makes painfully slow as pulling a teeth...")
- ping latency: hg.genunix.org is around 120ms, bitbucket 260ms, hg.openindiana.org 290ms, hg.illumos.org beyond 600ms. With http transport it may even be worse because each file is requested seperately instead of streaming it (that's my theory without knowing how exactly hg over http differs from hg over ssh).

This is resolved... we're on Joyent's infrastructure now, and it should be much faster.
