Ahh, did not know you were the one that had done that page. I actualy
used it on a cron job and added more lines to it to fetch the all the
4.7 CD isos. Actually I was trying various different methods like rsync
ftp and wget to come up with a way to mirror every thing plus an email
to me to notify me of new rpm's that get pulled into the local repo. I
also wanted to automate fetching a new Point In Release like from 5.2
-5.3 with out my intervention, but not sure if the isos will remain a
common name or just a call to fetch "*.iso".

You see, I thought Alan Bartlett added those. There needs to be I
believe an Original Author Name on the Wiki page no matter who edits it
in the future for respect to him/her and also the CentOS Community. I
for myself like to see who wrote the page to begin with. It is kinda
like a Validation thing no mater what license it is written under and
even if it is Creative Commons It is some to think about.
