  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Use Ubuntu mirrors.
    - Ubuntu branding.
    - Set default country to GB.
    - Never ask mirror/suite, mark it untranslatable, and give it

      if the latter has any mirrors; otherwise, fall through to defaulting
      to GB.
    - Exclude all-countries mirrors such as when
      determining whether there is a mirror in the country specified in
    - If the selected country has no mirror (excluding all-countries
      mirrors), then fall back to the default.
