Google Chrome yum repository...

Yesterday I noticed that yum repository on Google servers with packages for Chrome doesn't work. I see this in yum output when I run update process:
google-chrome                                            |  951 B     00:00 !!!
Note that three exclamation marks at the end! Also, once I received one  other error message, but I didnt' write it down, so I don't remember exactly what it was. Anyway, checking manually URL of the repository shows that it is not available:
# lftp
cd: Access failed: 404 Not Found (/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64)
But, it turns out that there is no linux repository at all:
# lftp
cd: Access failed: 404 Not Found (/linux)
I did some Googling and what puzzles me is that there is nothing about this change. I found several posts in the past that the repository isn't available, but that was over a year ago, and in the mean time repository was restored. Also, there are some more recent posts, but again, those were solved!

I checked my update logs and found that the last update was on July, 27th, so is it possible that the URL will be restored as it was in the past?
