ansible script for setting up a Shib RPM mirror (was: Re: Package mirroring / Jisc)

Thanks to Peter for working with me on this. We now have a relatively workable system that will be relying on a centrally hosted mirror list that I've put together, so I've updated the repo generation script [1] to produce an indirected reference to that mirror set, which currently only has the Austrian mirror in it.

I decided to omit the opensuse mirror for the simple reason that it just doesn't work, but if this is a problem for Peter's server before we get more mirrors online, I'll adjust it.

With this change the repo files look like this (platform aside):

name=Shibboleth (CentOS_7)

This should be permanent going forward and we'll add mirrors as they come online, so it should work as we'd all expect. I will update the docs in the wiki as time permits.
