We have released an update to the centos-release that changes some of
the architectures to use mirrorlist.centos.org (which also uses external
mirrors) .. instead of having all alternative arches use only
mirror.centos.org.  This should male updates happen faster for these
arches as it spreads the load from our mirror.centos.org servers
(normally 20-30 worldwide mirrors) to more than 600 world wide mirrors
in 83 countries in mirrorlist.
  
The files in this release are (only the applicable rpm will install on
your CentOS instance, based on its architecture):
centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.a.aarch64.rpm
centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.p.ppc64.rpm
centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.p9.ppc64le.rpm
centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.p.ppc64le.rpm
centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.i.i686.rpm
centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm

All these RPMs are built from the same Source RPM:
http://vault.centos.org/7.5.1804/updates/Source/SPackages/centos-release-7-5.1804.5.el7.centos.src.rpm

You can also get the centos-release sources from these git repos:
