So it leads me to a few other questions/comments:
is there an easy way to know that there's something to pull?
the license example is something that should be auto-pulled, IMHO. I don't want to learn about the change in the parent package only when I change from GPLv2 to GPLv3... (or we should start killing the checkin scripts). [I understand it's probably not easily doable, but that's something we'll have to consider at some point]
would it make sense to have an autopull setting? That would mean "every time something changes in the parent package, pull if this doesn't break the branch package". Or is there already such a setting?
I would guess that what most people would want to have is branch packages with autopull, and a big warning in the status page when a pull would break the package (which means someone has to manually fix the package). At least, that's what I would like to have, I think.
Note that I don't think it's a reason to block the conversion, btw.
