[CentOS-mirror] mirror centos 6.X only

Mirroring via httpis way more of a pain and uses WAY more bandwidth than
rsync since the latter just pulls the new or changed files. Mirroring just
6 is as simple as making the remote directory the 6 ones. I suggest
something like the following which should also keep the symlink up to date:

RSYNC="`which rsync`"
OPTS="--delay-updates --delete-delay --devices --links --partial --perms
--progress --recursive --sparse --specials --timeout=600 --times --quiet"

# CentOS 6 Repos
MSG="Starting sync of CentOS 6 repos"
echo "${MSG}"
logger -t rsync "${MSG}"
${RSYNC} ${OPTS} ${SRC}/centos-6/* ${DST}/CentOS/
