wondering if that wouldn't be more efficient to just submit it like a
new mirror proposal with all correct settings :)

BTW, wrt centos.is, you know that centos is a registered trademark, so
unsure about using it in a domain name.
Have you consent/agreement from the CentOS board to have it registered
and so use it ?
Can you file a ticket with centos board about this please ? (see
https://git.centos.org/centos/board/issues) . thanks :)
