Right now mirror.linux.duke.edu is available with a restricted rsync
port for mirroring. We have a lot of hosts that mirror fedora in our
allow list and I'm sure a lot of those same hosts mirror centos, as

So anyone who is currently pulling direct from centos and already syncs
from mirror.linux.duke.edu for fedora releases can just grab centos from
us, too.

in short: mirror.linux.duke.edu is cool w/acting as a hub for
I2-connected institutions. If there are adjustments to how we currently
mirror centos that need to be made, let me know.
