I also express my view, not to support Mirrors with 'Private' Label on
it. Anyone can create a Mirror of CentOS Project's files. With this
Private Mirror, he/she can redirect their CentOS box update traffic
and in this case my opinion to sync their mirror from nearest Tire 1
Mirror. There shouldn't have any headache to Master Mirror

But as a curtsy the owner of private mirror should contact the
maintainer of the Tire 1 mirrors, from where he/she is
updating/syncing private mirror.

With Best Wishes
