Title:
  please consider showing list of apt mirrors to choose from

Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu:
  Triaged

Bug description:
  Debian's package managers have had this option on install since the
  early 2000s.

  steps to find this
  1) Click gear in top left hand corner
  2) Software & Updates
  3) Other Software tab
  4) add

  the window then asks for "APT line:", ie something to insert into
  /etc/apt/sources.list -- of course what we should be doing here is
  adding our own mirror from the many mirrors in places like
  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors - but it would be far
  better for this (or some) list to be provided, and for the user to
  click on one of the available mirrors, in addition to having the
  ability to manually enter an 'apt' line here.
