Actually, let me take my "Reviewed-by" back.
Please, take a look at 5cac22bc68[0].

There, the commit message states:
centos: Remove URLs pointing to vault.centos.org

As vault.centos.org doesn't keep any ISO anymore, let's just remove
them from our db.

Along with the URLs removal, let's remove together the tree's as those
can't be accessed without a valid URL.

Removing all the vault.centos.org URLs matches with the recommendation
given by CentOS folks in #centos-devel:
"so in short, if some program links to vault, it's most likely not a
good idea and may not even work"

https://gitlab.com/libosinfo/osinfo-db/commit/5cac22bc6852d56988ff4be090551c5ec2f3f108

So, I guess the path to take is to drop #1 and #3.
