Need a US based Repo for CentOS 6.5

Our network is limited to US based connections only, everything else is GEO IP blocked. I need to install or setup a repo that only looks for packages in the US. So far everything I have found wants to connect to something outside of the US.

If you ask anyone this question on the CentOS support site (centos.org/forums), they'll likely mention that 6.6 is the current version (as of the date of this message), and that you should upgrade from 6.5 to ensure your installs have the latest security updates.  So I'll mention it, too. :)

Anyway, if you look on http://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/
and scroll down to the bottom you should find a list of 100+ US-based sites that host the official CentOS repos.

You will, of course, need to edit the BASEURL line of the repo configuration files (in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ subdirectory) to point to however many of those sites you want to use.  

e.g. the first US site in that list has the 6.6 x64 Updates repo at
http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/centos/6.6/updates/x86_64/
If you want the installation to choose its correct version and architecture at yum run time, you would use
http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/centos/$releasever/updates/$basearch/
in the BASEURL line.
