MatchBot should not deliver duplicate matches
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

In the case that a user creates a profile while the bot is running, they may get matched twice--once while the bot runs, once on the next run.

This is less likely to happen with Flow pages, because duplicate posts appear to be rejected with nochange.
ETA: That behavior was because of this bug: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T86612

Not urgent; the bot runs quickly enough that someone would have to get the timing just right (I think >1/100 chance of overlap if profile creation is distributed evenly in each 5-min block). We can revisit this in the future if needed.
