The changes to migrate pulp to use gopher[1] have been pushed to master.  For the most 
part, developers and users will not notice any significant differences.

Change Summary:
  * <git>/src/pulp/messaging package replaced with gopher.messaging
  * <git>/src/pulp/client/agent package replaced with gopher plugin defined as:
     - <git>/etc/gopher/plugins/pulp.conf
     - <git>/src/pulp/client/gopher/pulp.py
  * Packaging (rpm) changes:
    - pulp (rpm) requires: gopher-common
    - pulp-client requires: gopher
  * <git>/bin/pulpd (removed), replaced by gopherd
  * <git>/etc/init.d (removed)


I will update the pulp wiki as needed.

The 'pulpd' daemon no longer installed.  Pulp relies on 'gopherd'.

Run 'pulp-dev.py -U && pulp-dev.py -I' to update development environment:
  - (removed) /bin/pulpd --> <git>/bin/pulpd
  - (added)   /etc/gopher/plugins/pulp.conf --> <git>/etc/gopher/plugins/pulp.conf
  - (added)   /usr/lib/gopher/plugins/pulp.py --> <git>/src/pulp/client/gopher/pulp.py

The pulp /agent/ code running in gopherd will continue logging in 
/var/log/pulp/client.log.  However, gopher infrastructure related messages will log in 
/var/log/gopher/agent.log.  This includes problem loading plugins or uncaught exceptions 
raised within plugin code.

The [messaging] section in the client.conf has been removed. This /was/ used by pulpd. 
So, pulp agent (gopher) is configured to point to a /remote/ broker by changing the 'url' 
in /etc/gopher/agent.conf.  Going forward, I have some thoughts on making this simpler.

After 'git pull', you will need gopher installed on you box.  RPMs available in the 
fedora-pulp repo[2].  Also, git will not remove the messaging/ directory after the pull if 
it contains .pyc files.  You may need to clean this up by hand.  Same with the 
client/agent/ directory.

Any problems, please ping me asap.
