Then do so! :)

You can make your own mirrorlist for your own use if you want.

just put the baseurl of the sites you like in a file somewhere on your
system

then refer to the file in the repo section in the .repo file like this:

[myrepo]
name=some repo
mirrorlist=file:///path/to/my/mirrorlist

that's it!
-sv
