[Pulp-dev] pulp and multi region support.

I agree with Mihai's suggestion to distribute the content Pulp produces and
not Pulp itself. Here are two ways to distribute content between two

1) Have a standalone Pulp installed in each region, and have one Pulp sync
from what the other Pulp publishes. This allows you to delivery content
using Pulp at both sites. For each repo you create it on both Pulp's and
then one of them uses the feed from the other.

2) Another option is to use the rsync distributor which uses rsync to
deliver published rpm content to remote servers. This lets you push content
from a single Pulp to filesystems in other regions. The docs for the rsync
distributor are here:

Please let us know if you have other questions or ideas.
