Looking through it, it looks like a pretty straightforward perl script, 
and should run on CentOS if you extract it out of the .deb.  However, 
I'd only recommend using debmirror if you want to mirror a subset of the 
archive.  If you're willing to host the whole ubuntu archive, BlueT's 
script will work fine.
