The mirrorlist command inserts a base href tag, which should be omitted, as it
is not needed for anything - the CSS is not loaded anyways

I'm not sure I understand correctly. The base href tag should be ommitted? It's
inserted only if the MirrorBrainMirrorlistStyleSheet directive is configured in
Apache's config. Otherwise it shouldn't be there.

if (scfg->mirrorlist_stylesheet) {
ap_rprintf(r, " <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="%s" />\n",

Can you explain what you mean?

I have set

MirrorBrainMirrorlistStylesheet "/mirrorbrain.css"
(which is a copy of

In order to have the output of

mb mirrorlist -f xhtml -i png -I /usr/share/flags/countries/16x11/ -o
/var/www/sites/ -B
/etc/mirmon/footer -t "The Document Foundation Mirrors" -c "The Document
Foundation Mirrors
Note that this list only contains mirrors that are not
restricted to one specific country or region"

work properly, I have to remove the base href tag, otherwise (IIRC) the images
are not loaded properly.

Or do I choose the wrong approach?
