Sync fails to optimize on second sync to new remote when no repo version is created
Full sync should take place when a repo is synced with a new remote. After that first sync to the new remote, barring other changes, the second and subsequent syncs to this remote should be optimized.
That is not happening if the new remote uses the same url as the previous remote. Instead, if no new repository version was created after the previous sync and the new remote was created after the initial repository version was created, the full sync takes place without optimization. That takes place here when this check fails and thus optimization is skipped: https://github.com/pulp/pulp_rpm/blob/master/pulp_rpm/app/tasks/synchronizing.py#L341
You can see this take place with the existing tests if you remove the line that gives the new remote a different url:
body['url'] = RPM_RICH_WEAK_FIXTURE_URL

- Status changed from NEW to CLOSED - WONTFIX
- Triaged changed from No to Yes
That's a rare case when 2 remotes have exactly the same content and sync is run for those 2 remotes sequentially. There is no correctness problem here, just no optimisation in this specific case.
If you feel that it's important to fix it, feel free to re-open this issue or to file a new one.
