[CentOS-mirror] New Mirror Request

Is it only deleting your DVD ISOs or all your ISOs?  I suspect only the DVD ISOs since you should be getting the CD ISOs with your normal sync.  You could look at using --exclude for the DVD files, but if you aren't also actively syncing your DVD ISOs you could also end up with drift.  If you are just manually grabbing DVD ISOs you may just want to move them out of the CentOS tree for your own use.

Not using the --delete could result in you accidentally providing incorrect packages to anyone using your mirror and could result is disk space issues.  I think anyone using your mirror would appreciate you keeping your mirror exactly the same as your upstream.

Agreed.  But, will "yum install" work if we do not have content in those folders?

What about the ISOs?  Running the "--delete" deletes the ISOs as well.  Is there way to keep the ISOs inspite of using this flag?

Will omitting the "--delete" flag make our server unsuitable to become a public mirror?

Not a very good idea since you will keep accumulating outdated content -
instead of keeping only the latest version of packages, you will end up
keeping every version that is ever released (sort of).
