milcheck, a binary to display mirrorlist status data in the terminal

Hi,

Because I recently learned Rust, I wanted to create something with it. So I created "milcheck".

https://image.petitmur.beer/milcheck.png

One of my need as an Archlinux user, is to regularly check the status of the mirrors presents in my mirrorlist before a system upgrade (as recommended in the official documentation).

It is not a ranking mirrorlist utility.
It just reads your `/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist`, fetch the corresponding data from the official mirror status page: https://www.archlinux.org/mirrors/status/ and display it.
A quick way to check the status of your mirrors. Nothing more.

If you are interested, you can find it here: https://github.com/doums/milcheck

Hope it will be useful (just a little) smile

Thanks for this. Very useful, so I decided to make an AUR package:
