When we update the mirrors on mirror.centos.org ... we put the packages
on first, then the metadata.

This approach means that during our rsyncs, we always have consistent
installs ... except that the packages could be newer until a given sync
finishes (but you should be able to install from the repo at all times).

But the vast majority of the time, everything is up2date.
