     * All BinaryPackageRelease generated by the found Build are included
     * ...
+ CelsoProvidelo: As agreed with ColinWatson on IRC, we don't need the fulfill upload queue information to move publications from one pocket to another w/o rebuild (the first use case). It can happen in a similar way we do overrides (changes-overrides.py) we could simply create a new publishing record to the targeted pocket, so there will be traces of this operation only in publishing-land.

  The command-line tool should be based on LaunchpadScript infrastructure and respect the following format:

  --to-distribution -> to-distribution (default: ubuntu)

- CelsoProvidelo: when using --move, the original record(s) will be marked as SUPERSEDED but they will only be dominated when a new publication happens in that suite.
+ CelsoProvidelo: We can land this script with partial functionality, for instance only copying stuff from one pocket to another. This way we could quickly sort quickly only the uncovered functionality (BACKPORTS -> UPDATES w/o rebuild and SECURITY -> UPDATES propagation).
+ CelsoProvidelo: We will operate in COPY mode only, when necessary the old record should be explicitly removed using remove-package.py.
  CelsoProvidelo: Archive support support should be included when PPA lands.
- CelsoProvidelo: Overrides support can be included here, but it's not mandatory, see Unresolved Issues section.
