How can I copy a package from one pocket to another?

Asked by Steven Black

Basically, I want to have both unstable and stable pockets. I want the unstable pocket to be built automatically from our sources, but I don't want to manage a separate branch and force people to merge to the stable branch once it has been tested. I'd like to just copy the (now tested) package from one pocket to another.

It shouldn't need to be rebuilt, as I'm not building for another distribution. I'd rather save the man and machine cycles and just migrate the package as part of the testing process.

Can this be done with the Falcon shell? (It doesn't appear the documentation for the Falcon Shell is online right now.) Or do I need to add the feature myself?

This can be done by copying the package files to another pocket and running falcon scan.

This is suboptimal though and has been asked before. I like the idea of using the falcon shell for it. Turning this into bug so I don't forget to implement it.

Can you help with this problem?
