Mirror: Virginia Tech CS department http://mirror.cs.vt.edu/
URL for testing: http://mirror.cs.vt.edu/pub/centos-beta/
(also accessable http://via )

 From the root of the site, /centos/ symlinks to the proper directory 
for the beta, and is respected by apache.

Still syncing, but should be done soon.
