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.

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

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


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.
