It would be nice if the problems with archive_site_local could be fixed. We use a custom archive_site_local on Buildbot and Travis and because of these bugs it doesn't work quite right.

Unexpected behavior when archive_site_local contains more than 1 URL

I submitted a PR for this. You requested tests verifying the behavior. I don't know how to write tests for MacPorts.

archive_site_local URLs are attempted twice

preferred_hosts has no effect on archive_site_local

Warning when disabling default archive_sites

This isn't really related, but maybe something we should fix: either our behavior is wrong or our documentation about being able to disable this setting is wrong.

I think similar problems probably exist for the local setting for master_sites and patch_sites.
