Pulp 3 Deb plugin - Copy DEB content between the repositories
Since RPM and DEB plugins are almost compatibile with each other in API endpoints, is there something similar to RPM copy for Deb plugin ? https://pulp-rpm.readthedocs.io/en/latest/workflows/copy.html#
We are looking for workflows on DEB plugin documentations, but copy doesn't exist. Are you planning to support it in near future or is there any other way you would suggest when moving a package between the repositories ?

While the basic repo modification API (add/remove content) should be similar for
pulp_rpm, there currently is nothing equivalent to the
pulp_rpm "advanced copy API".
We do plan to add something like this to
pulp_deb eventually, but I would not say it is planned for the very "near future".
The advanced copy API for RPM is dependent on the following postgresql DB extension (https://github.com/Katello/postgresql-evr), and the equivalent work for Debian is in progress, but far from complete.
We also need to finish our
pulp_2to3_migration work for
pulp_deb before we can move on to other major features.
My vaguely optimistic guesstimate is that we might get around to "advanced copy API" for
pulp_deb within the next 6 months or so (but of course I am not actually promising anything).
