Distributors are only used for exporting Publications out of Pulp.

Distributions make Publications available to consume via http(s) at /content/relative/path/of/distribution/. Each Publication can be associated with any number of Distributions.

You lost me a bit here getting into distributions. I think I want to be able to export the same repository to two separate published locations.

Say I have a repository A. I want to make repository A available at the following paths:


Is that possible in the design? 

The names are very similar, but perform different function. Perhaps Distributors should be called Exporters instead.

For me, either naming scheme works though perhaps for most exporters might click easier.

Will Pulp 3 support multiple distributors on a single repository? Could I, for example, attach the yum distributor multiple times but with a different output path to publish the same repository at different locations?

I've updated the MVP use cases for the Distributors. The diff is here[0]. I removed the use case of a distributor exporting a Repository Version. The idea is to give users a single way to export repository versions. Users will first create a publication and then use a distributor to export that publication.

Please reply to this thread with any suggestions for the use cases related to Distributors.

I'd like to write up stories for these use cases early next week, so the work can be merged by Feb 15th.
