[Pulp-list] Uploading the same RPM to multiple pulp repos via the REST API

Thanks for the reply! Also, thanks for still being able to parse my
contorted phrase that you quoted, I have no idea how I managed to write

I've changed my code to do a unit lookup by checksum first (arguably I
should have done that anyway), and do a copy if it did find the unit.

The only wrinkles:

* if I find an orphan (a unit for which repository_memberships is empty), I
can't figure out how I can copy that into a repo. The association code
seems to expect a source repo. I suspect I need to re-upload in that case.
* if I attempt to push a new unit into two repos, I can push it to the
first one, but I could not figure out a way to retrieve the underlying unit
from the original upload's task. There are some IDs that do not correlate
to anything I can use. So I need to do an unnecessary lookup to find out
what I've just pushed, which is a real shame. I guess I could do the
copying by checksum again, to avoid an extra lookup.

Thank you again!
