When ISO plugin is generalized to "FILES", could we please not require PULP_MANIFEST files?
I understand there are plans to generalize the ISO plugin for Pulp. This is great, because many of us use it to host arbitrary files such as kickstarts, RPM signing keys, and lots of other things.
This works well when the authoritative repository is already under our control, or Pulp is the authoritative repository. But it is impossible to sync a remote file repository because there won't be a 'PULP_MANIFEST' file.
The generalized files plugin (name TBD?), would be much more useful if it could check for a PULP_MANIFEST file, but then fall back to a recursive link-following scheme in the event that no PULP_MANIFEST exists in the feed.
I'm imagining something analogous to 'wget -r', but I'm not sure if libcurl, nectar, or python-requests has such capability.
