There is a long-standing problem that mirrorbrain on download.opensuse.org does not do reasonable redirection when a user comes by with an ipv6 address...
In my case for example, mirrorbrain claim I'm coming from an unknown country. It's a small country, ok, but by far not unknown (Switzerland)
So far we know that the geoip database we know is capable of assigning my IP appropriately.
the goal of this project is to find the missing bits to the puzzle to make mirror brain understand this setup.
This would solve a long-standing issue, that is being reported over and over (and as time progresses, more frequently, as IPv6 becomes more widespread)
A sample bug report would be https://github.com/openSUSE/obs-autosubmit/issues/1 or also https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/13106
