Just to let you all know that starting from today, mirrorlist.centos.org
nodes answer "Invalid release/repo/arch combination" and also that
content was removed from mirrors.
Johnny pushed the last updates yesterday, that went out to external
mirrors .

These mirrors will also delete all that content so if your *really* need
to find such content, https://vault.centos.org is the only way to to go,
but due to reduced bandwidth, capacity, we encourage you to use one of
the external mirrors listed on vault.centos.org, with probably more
resources/bandwidth that we currently have.
Some of these mirrors also continue to offer rsync access.

Cheers, and time to have a drink and celebrate 10 years of CentOS 6 :
you served us all well !
