auto-distribution of repositories not supported
Pulpcore has auto-distribution of repositories... if you add a repository without a version to a distribution, then as the repo is updated the distribution tracks the latest version (see https://docs.pulpproject.org/en/3.0/nightly/workflows/exposing-content.html#auto-distribution-of-a-repository)
In pulp_deb this doesn't work. There's an additional abstraction (publication), and when the publication is pointed to the the repository without a version, it looks up the latest version and hardcodes that. :(

pulp_deb needs publications (for creating metadata). So this feature would only work if there were facilities for auto-publishing which i am unaware of.
Can we defer this to a wishlist?
Meanwhile the cron like automation that triggers the sync could also perform the publication and distribution to mimic the auto-distribution.
