mb export can create two different formats now:


root@download # mb export --format=mirmon | tail -2
kz      http://mirror.space.kz/openoffice/      mirror@space.kz
kz      ftp://mirror.space.kz/openoffice/       mirror@space.kz
root@download # mb export --format=mirmon-apache | tail -2
http    kz      http://mirror.space.kz/openoffice/      mirror@space.kz
ftp     kz      ftp://mirror.space.kz/openoffice/       mirror@space.kz


Hey, and now that reading the man page of mirmon-2.3. Turns out that Henk had very similar 
thoughts at some time :-) Look at this option:


       Two formats are supported :

       * plain : lines like
             us http://www.tux.org/ [email] ...
             nl http://apache.cs.uu.nl/dist/ [email] ...
             nl rsync://archive.cs.uu.nl/apache-dist/ [email] ...

       * apache : lines like those in the apache mirrors.list
             ftp  us ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/net/apache/dist/ user@tux.org ...
             http nl http://apache.cs.uu.nl/dist/ user@cs.uu.nl ...

       Note that in style 'plain' the third item is reserved for an optional email address : 
the site's contact address.

       Specify the required format with 'list_style' (see below).  The default style is 
'plain'.


So it turns out that mirmon can use two formats, and the default has changed recently.

Now the default matches again with the one of mb export.

The fix is in trunk, r8145.

Workaround is to do:
mb export --format=mirmon | /bin/awk '{ print $2, $3, $4 }' > mirrorlist

mb export --format=mirmon currently produces 4 columns:
http	us	http://repo.fukawi2.nl/archserver/	fukawi2@example.com
ftp	us	ftp://repo.fukawi2.nl/archserver/	fukawi2@example.com
http	fr	http://repo.archserver.fr/	faelar@example.com
http	se	http://www.gishten.com/pub/archserver/	gishten@example.com

The first column is not required for current version (2.3) of mirmon.
