[Pulp-list] repository environments and promoting

 I'm using Ansible playbooks for deployment and Puppet+Hiera to setup
repozitories on servers (right now about 30 repozitories at all, about 5
per server). All servers have disabled live repozitories (for security
patches) and enabled assigned stage (dev has live, integration unstable,
production stable). Than it's just a pipeline of commands on Ansible
playbook like this:

# Live repo runs two times per day
rpm repo sync run --repo-id=centos_live
rpm repo publish run --repo-id=centos6_live

#Every week
rpm repo copy rpm --from-repo-id=centos6_live centos6_unstable
rpm repo publish run ...

#Every month
rpm repo copy rpm --from-repo-id= centos6_unstable centos6_stable
rpm repo publish run ...

After publishing Ansible playbook will run update on all servers in given

Is that something what do you want to achieve ? As a simple GUI I'm using
Jenkins (as a smarter crontab) and ocsreports to get back installed
packages and system overview. Pulp server is behind caching Nginx proxies
(just RPMs, not metadata). I don't using any kind of registration to Pulp
as for dynamic/cloud environment it's more or less stupid idea.
