CIKit just got better by getting a new update that affects the speed of Solr downloading. Before, the location of a package was settled to a centralized server which is far to people in Australia, for instance.

Since now the script for automatic mirror determination will be used to find out the closest server to retrieve the package.

The tests have shown cool performance boost: the package has been downloaded for ~20 seconds instead of couple minutes.

Don’t forget cikit self-update to get the feature in.
