> 2) Have the user find the publication via query that sorts on time and
filters only for a specific publisher. This could be fragile because with a
multi-user system and no hard references between publications and tasks,
answering the question "which is the publication for me" is hard because
another user could have submitted a publish too. While not totally perfect,
this could work.

A "no hard references" design is used in part of Pulp 2, for tracking tasks
that result from a scheduled pulp-consumer task. The design is extremely
problematic. It prevents QE from testing scheduled pulp-consumer tasks.
Thankfully, pulp-consumer is going away, so it's not a huuuge problem with
Pulp 2.

If Pulp QE is to test a feature in Pulp 3, please avoid a "no hard
references" design for that feature.
