      Description

      This feature is needed because:

      • The automatic mirror selection algorithm sometimes picks a bad option.
        • (Just 2 weeks ago) After running overnight on the default mirror, the installer only downloaded 12%. The user reported that picking a different mirror (using the Qt SDK Repo Chooser [1]) sped things up dramatically: https://forum.qt.io/topic/92445/
      • A specific mirror might sometimes be blocked client-side: QTIFW-1079
