pulp_resource_manager currently uses a mongodb collection with a uniqueness constraint to obtain a lock. Multiple processes attempt to insert a document, and the one who succeeds is the active process.
Given the lock model that has already been created in django, convert pulp_resource_manager to use it instead of the mongo model.
It's important to test that these locks are acquired and released as expected. Hand testing this by manually invoking two pulp_resource_managers and testing failover would be good.
