I think I would also prefer a list of available repositories over a
hard-coded choice.  It may be that some places (say, Australia) have
better bandwidth to one over the other, and users will be able to have a
better experience with certain mirrors.

While I'm sympathetic to the idea of referring to kernel.org because
it's open-source and non-profit, users outside of North America are
likely to have a less stellar experience with its mirrors, since they're
all in North America.

I would suggest that whatever option we choose, we only specify HTTPS or
SSH (i.e., encrypted) protocols.  Encryption is cheap, and we have lots
of options meeting that criterion.
