As a user, I can mirror RPM repository content and metadata
Problem: clients installing packages from RPM mirrors hosted by Pulp don't have access to the original metadata provided in the remote repository.
Solution: add ability to create repository versions that contain the original metadata from the remote repository
This could be accomplished by introducing a new repository type to the RPM plugin:
- RpmMirrorRepository - only supports sync operation
The RPMDistribution will need to support users providing a repository or a repository version in addition to publications. If a repository or repo version is specified, the RpmDistribution should validate that this repository is of RpmMirrorRepository type.

ideally we wouldn't have to generate a normal yum publication when going this route, as those are quite expensive to generate.
You would not need to create a publication. That's why we need to be able to serve the repository version directly.
