Correct .. I am talking only about donated machines that are part of the
mirror.centos.org dns name.

Other mirrors that have their own hostnames that are non centos.org can
use https and it works fine.

We just don't use it w/ mirror.centos.org machines.

but we do sign the metadata .. so you can make sure the rpms, no  matter
their origin, are real if you enable signed repodata in yum/dnf
regardless of where they are downloaded and if http or https.
