[SOLVED] Pacman Mirrorlist Generator broken?

The Pacman Mirrorlist Generator at https://www.archlinux.org/mirrorlist/ does not seem to be working correctly.

I have a script that uses a wget to fetch just the USA mirrors, but today, it got them all. At first, I thought perhaps something had changed, so I went to the site to generate a list from there so I could compare the URL it generated with the one I was using. I found the URL was the same and so were the results. I tried a couple of different countries with the same results. It seems to always return the full list, not just the country specified.

I looked at a system I updated a few days ago (2018-04-18) and it had worked correctly then, but today (2018-04-21) it does not.

Thanks,
Ross

Looks like you may have found a bug in the new archweb that was just released.  You may want to file a bug report so that the developers will know about it.  In case it matters, I too am getting the entire list even when I select only one country.

I posted it to the arch-mirrors mailing list and got a referral to a message in the arch-devops mailing list. The message indicated the has been reported but not yet fixed.

Seems to be working now. Closing.
