Description

The various remotes do not support setting the 'mirror' mode, it was removed as part of: https://pulp.plan.io/issues/3492

I had expressed some concern here: https://www.redhat.com/archives/pulp-dev/2018-March/msg00058.html
but it seemed to not get any attention. In the meantime it sees that download policy was added back to the remotes.

The reason we removed mirror from remotes is that different repos sharing a remote might want different behaviors (ie one repo does a mirror sync while the other uses additive). I've thought that perhaps we should join remotes to repos (many-to-many) like git does and perhaps this join model could store the mirror value.

There was a concern raised that perhaps some plugins wouldn't use mirror and that it should belong in the plugin and not core. However, I think the argument could be made for many of the fields on remote (eg policy, ssl config, etc).

This is a big change that would require architectural changes. If this is desired please reexpress your desire for the feature.
