A Nagios / Icinga plugin for checking IPFire pakfire updates

Release Release 1.2.1 latest

Fixed an annoying bug (see also issue #14) where all mirrors were checked instead of picking the first working one (which was the default previously). As a result, the plugin took quite long to calculate the system status forcing some Nagios/Icinga configurations to classify timeouts.

$ time ./
real    0m36.631s
user    0m10.301s
sys     0m0.163s

New behavior:

$ time ./
real    0m0.789s
user    0m0.441s
sys     0m0.027s
