Thanks for the clarification. I can work with that.
It brings up a couple of question in regards to automation. In essence I will want to do something like copy all units from upstream that are not already in testing (minus "kernel-*"). Do I need to manually determine the delta between upstream and testing to craft my filter, or is there some way to automatically avoid copying duplicate units? Or is the nature of the storage such that copying is too cheap to concern ourselves with duplicate operations? Examples would be quite valuable :)
Also, I can schedule a sync but not a copy operation. Would I need to pass --password on the command line to automate, or is there another way that doesn't involve human intervention?
