[CentOS-devel] Trimming/Removing EOL SIG content from mirror.centos.org

Hi all SIG members,

When working in our "Staging" environment while validating the new
signing process (still to be announced when fully in use/prod), we
detected some SIGs having multiple variants/versions of their packages.

Just one example (already discussed with Niels and Kaleb in
#centos-devel but let's just this one a example):
Gluster has multiple versions still listed on mirror.centos.org :

As the new process would automatically decide where to push content
based on koji/cbs tag name, we found the interesting corner case of
The CBS tag is storage7-gluster-312-release and so new process would
push to
centos/7/storage/x86_64/gluster-312/ instead of
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/storage/x86_64/gluster-3.12/ (see the
diff betwen koji/cbs tag and the final path/destination)

It seems that only Gluster was impacted for older releases, while it
should be good for new releases (tested).

But so that brings the following request : can you come with a list of
EOL repositories that you'd like us to trim/remove from
mirror.centos.org (they'll be archived to vault.centos.org) ?
Doing that at the same time as we launch the new signing/push process
would be a good idea.

Thanks a lot in advance for your collaboration !
