Publisher and Repository fields are not required fields for a standard distribution.
If both are provided, this distribution will automatically update to the newest publication every time the specified publisher publishes the specified repository.
This issue is to make this clear in the documentation (by fixing in-code comments) https://github.com/pulp/pulp/blob/3.0-dev/pulpcore/pulpcore/app/models/publication.py#L180-L183

- Subject changed from Clarify publisher and repository fields on distribution model to Document Autodistribution
IMO this is clear in the help text on the distribution serializer. Still, the auto-distribution feature should be documented outside of the API docs, maybe in "Workflows"
