So, if I understand the patterns (I'm new to using producer/consumer patterns),
I set up a Pulp Server to manage the mirror-repositories (producer)
and point the Cobbler Server at them (as a client/consumer) and let Cobbler feed out the RPM's to the cobbler-ized client-hosts.

You can actually have Cobbler do pass through repositories to pulp if you uncheck 'mirror locally' under advanced (I believe that is the right option).
This sounds very do-able !

I have a repo on my Cobbler server of RPM's that are not from another repo, so I have to run "createrepo" manually whenever I update the collection.  The client-hosts connecting thru Cobbler pick up the changes.

OK, one more question: I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.  Can I still register these client-hosts with Red Hat Network ?  I recently encountered a problem with Cobbler-generated yum mirror-repositories and the yum-rhn-plugin not playing nice together.

I use cobbler+rhn regularly and haven't seen any issues.  feel free to bring this up in #cobbler on freenode or on the cobbler list.

I have brought it up on the cobbler list (not dev) <http://www.mail-archive.com/cobbler lists fedorahosted org/msg06621.html>
and did not get any helpful information, and no one is active on the IRC every time I have tried -- #cobbler Right ?  Is there a #cobbler-dev ? 

heh.. oops.. i did not remember there was a user list... maybe i should join that one too...

channel varies the times i've been in there
