I run a CentOS and a Fedora mirror site.

For the Fedora mirror site, I can log in to Fedora's
mirror administration site and define a set of ranges
of IP addresses.

When the mirrorlist server receives a request from
one of these IP addresses it would return my local
mirror as the first choice, unless my mirror has
become too old.

Quite useful.
