For the second time this week, we have lost all 5.5 content. The culprit 
appears to be centosh. Here is the rsync log.

msync.CentOS.org rsync service (centosh)

[blah blah blah]

receiving file list ... done
deleting 5.5/updates/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml
deleting 5.5/updates/x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz

and on and on till the entire 5.5 tree is empty. Ouch.
