All things come to he who waits

On the 9th of January I was bemoaning how hard it is to set up a sources.list file under Debian. Well, I was just browsing some documentation and bugger me if I didn't come across netselect.

In a nutshell it automates the creation and maintenance of your /etc/apt/sources.list file, by pinging available mirrors and selecting the fastest one, then it writes the sources.list file for you. I'm off to install it now.
