The actual mirror crawler process would need access to your mirror to
check validity so even if I add it to the mirror list, it would be
marked as gone by the crawler process and so would be removed from the
mirror list.
The current status for all .id third-party mirrors is available here
http://mirror-status.centos.org/#id and those ones are reachable from
I don't see a direct way of adding your mirror without it being marked
as gone/dead/unreachable directly.
