Hi Fabian,

Yes, I just want to be listed, but I didn't have global internet
access. But, the server can reach internet from inside to outside, and
you can't access from outside the server (Internasional Connectivity).

How the mirrorlist checks the mirror? Crawl the timestamp.txt and some
binary files to get the data? Or what? IMHO, the Fedora use
"report_mirror" script that used to report from mirror server to
mirrorlist server. I think it's more usefull than crawl the data from
mirrorlist server to mirror server.

AFAIK, my mirror doesn't have international connectivity, but I can
reach and synced the files (eg. Fedora Content) and report them using
report_mirror script.

If you try to get mirror.rndc.or.id you will got timeout, but it was
listed on EPEL & Fedora publiclist mirror (mirrorlist).

Could CentOS Mirror List have that permission? (Without internasional
connectivity, the mirror maintainer still can be mirror the CentOS)
