I have finally configured this on mirror.chpc.utah.edu. I now have three 
CentOS-specific rsync targets:
* CentOS and CentOS-nodvd, which exclude the DVD images (by using the
   line "exclude = *DVD*.iso *dvd*.iso" in rsyncd.conf)
* CentOS-incdvd, which includes the DVD images.

Everyone is welcome to sync from me.
