Rosetta Stone (Debian apt-spy)
Does Arch provide a tool for pacman that generates a config file based upon the closest but fastest Arch mirror?

I am looking for something similar to apt-spy for Debian. It generates the following at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/apt-spy.list:


# sources.list generated by apt-spy v3.1
# Generated using:
# apt-spy \
# -d wheezy \
# -s ca
deb wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free
deb stable/updates main
apt-spy queries all the known mirrors in your given country and generates a mirror list based upon the best performing. It bases the performance on HTTP or FTP download speeds.
