You are right they are the same as it seems there is no "lokal" mirror
in your region yet.

I saw so many thoughtless post of sources.lists on forums and mailing
lists and more over there will be a lot of ppl who thoughtless
copy-and-paste those sources.list over to there own.
Maybe call me narrow-minded in this case but IMHO it is allways a good
advice to think twice which sources to put in there.

A standard all complete (K)ubuntu sources.list only need three lines and
you will have access to all the goodness that (K)ubuntu provide.

sorry Nigel and Dotan if i was bit rude but it´s just i am thankfull for
the high quality service (K)ubuntu provides and it is my opinion that at
least a user should treat this effort with respect.
This also (but not only) applies to the precious resource of mirrors.
