So, I just pushed the centos 6 and 7 .box files and they are now on
https://cloud.centos.org/centos/6/vagrant/x86_64/images/ and

only the c7 sha256sum.txt I was able to sign as I don't have access to
the gpg key for 6, so back to either Johnny or KB.

But if that's not needed for vagrant directly, you can proceed with next
step I guess :)

It would be good to have Brian chiming in this thread as other vagrant
boxes were build through koji.mbox and so imagefactory too.
If we consider that having those built all on cbs.centos.org , we can
work on that if that's easier for you too :)
