Hi Tobias,

Thanks a lot for the initial report and follow-up with the mirror admin.
I've disabled it from mirrors so shouldn't appear in yum/dnf lists in
the next hour.

I'll also send mail to them to explain the reason why (but they should
be subscribed to this list but apparently not reacting to initial email
you sent here)

Kind Regards,
Fabian Arrotin
