copy and a second save differ in that the next save gives you the next 
version number but zero changes. I assume two different versions from 
the same author with a zero diff only will create confusion.

That said, I'm no expert and cannot vouch for a standard way. I always 
save to my local repository and then directly copy to the other repos, 
mainly because it's very convenient this way. I don't have to add more 
than one repository to every package because copy will offer all known 

Curious if others do it different.
