This is a question better raised upstream, so I Cc'd both projects.

The mirrorlist extension to repomd is currently yum only. smart has
a mirror management part, but can't read in a propsed set of mirrors
from yum's mirrorlist, and apt has some mirror support, too via some
lua scripts.

Both projects could possibly get some lua or python plugin magic and
offer reading the list of mirrors from yum's mirrorlist format. The
best way to explore this though is through the upstream development
