> RPM plugin team discussed this question recently and we are leaning
> towards a conclusion that by default Pulp is expected to publish a repo
> with a directory structure of a remote repository.
> E.g. At the moment if no base_path is configured for a distribution, those
> two repositories [0][1] (same content, different layout) result in a repo
> with the same flat structure, all packages go into the root directory. Is
> there an expectation that Pulp would generate two repositories with the
> directory structure as in the original remote repo?
> 1. RPM plugin users, please, speak out, do you need/expect/want a
> directory structure to be the same as in a remote repo you sync from?
> 2. It would be good to know if there is such a need for any other plugin
> than RPM. It will help to answer the questions: Should we handle this in
> pulpcore? or in every plugin since plugins might have different needs for a
> default layout?
