The repodata for all repo's syncs after all the rpms (in a second run)
.. so that should not happen on a mirror.centos.org.

For external mirrors, those are donated and maintained by people who are
volunteers .. we have no real input on how often they update or how they
do it.

We do modify our mirrorlist so that it only lists the mirrors that have
the proper repodata.  If the external mirrors also sync their repodata
last, this should be sufficient.
