Thanks, this and the three other mirrors have now been added and will 
show up on the lists shortly. You should be able to rsync directly from 
msync.centos.org and us-msync.centos.org now.

My only concern was with the IP address of the mirror in Johannesburg. 
Testing on https://www.maxmind.com/en/geoip-demo gave me 
US, CA as the location. Traceroute shows that the server is indeed in 
South Africa, but GeoIP databases don't know that yet.

I would recommend updating your netblock's information via 
https://support.maxmind.com/geoip-data-correction-request/ -- any 
updates done here will trickle down to GeoIP databases used by CentOS as 
well (according to their own schedules; changes aren't immediately 
visible everywhere).

If the netblock remains identified as an U.S. netblock, the other 
servers near your South African mirrors will be identified as being in 
U.S., and mirrorlist.centos.org will offer them U.S. mirrors instead of 
your local mirror. This might not be optimal.

But I'll leave this for your consideration. Thanks for the mirrors :)
