Are you sure about this?

$ curl 'http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=os'
Invalid release

This would be the expected response, not a list of mirrors. If you get a 
list of mirrors with the above curl command, please rerun it with -v to 
see which IP address it is connecting to.

Odd, I get a 404.

True. Looking at http://mirror.in2p3.fr/linux/CentOS/5.11/ I see a 
readme file stating that this version of CentOS is deprecated, so it is 
syncing. Most likely in2p3.fr does not use the --delete flag for rsync 
to delete the files that are no longer on the master server. They should 
add --delete to fix this problem.
