Hi, unfortunately we can use only one email address as the contact email 

There's one odd problem with your mirror that I would like to get fixed 
before I add your mirror to the list. It appears that if the HTTP 
request to your mirror contains an X-Forwarded-For header with any 
value, the request gets dropped. This X-Forwarded-For header is added by 
various proxies such as Squid, which I'm using here at home. For example:

$ curl -v -m 60 -H "X-Forwarded-For: x" 
* About to connect() to mirror.mobap.edu port 80 (#0)
*   Trying
* Connected to mirror.mobap.edu ( port 80 (#0)
 > GET /centos/timestamp.txt HTTP/1.1
 > User-Agent: curl/7.29.0
 > Host: mirror.mobap.edu
 > Accept: */*
 > X-Forwarded-For: x
* Operation timed out after 60001 milliseconds with 0 out of -1 bytes 
* Closing connection 0
curl: (28) Operation timed out after 60001 milliseconds with 0 out of -1 
bytes received

$ curl http://mirror.mobap.edu/centos/timestamp.txt

Our mirror crawler can't detect this kind of a problem by itself, 
therefore I'll need to wait until this gets fixed before I add the 
mirror. Thanks for checking this!
