First you shouldn't target mirror.centos.org but rather mirrorlist, that
will offload traffic to a nearest validated mirror ...
Second : making it visible (but not the default) is part of the release
process to start looking at external mirrors that have content and then
yes, in a magic flip, have everybody pointing to it ...

So yes, you understood that it's coming, but no, not fully usable (yet)
, as some zero-day updates are being built and tested and then 8.4.2105
will be announced ;-)
