I don't know, as I don't mirror from a RH derived system, but 
rather from a NAS device with lftp ...

Is there enough information in the SCL.O yum metadata to 
include sources.  I don's see it in:
(indeed, it is not at all clear in the web presence how to 
simply download the per collection /etc/yum.repos.d/ .repo 
specification file for the site en mass [thus my script in 
my prior email in this thread]

I see the --source option 'also' grabs .src.rpm files, but 
there is certainly no way shown in the man page to ignore 
binaries.  We don't use third-party binaries off 
quasi-untrusted sources, and so would never use then, and 
would prefer not to spend the bandwidth, nor use the drive 
space for something not of use to us
