Rebase-helper and upstream monitoring service

Rebase-helper is intended to solve or help with most of the manual steps a package maintainer has to do, when updating the package to the latest upstream version. It can assist with tasks that can not be automated, for example rebasing of downstream patches. Rebase-helper can perform multiple checks and inform the maintainer about possible issues caused by the rebase. It is also possible to run rebase-helper in non-interactive mode, however using it may provide only partial results mainly because some tasks simply need user interaction.

Rebase-helper is planned to be integrated with Fedora Upstream Release Monitoring. For every new package version, the rebase-helper will be run and a comment with the results will be added into the appropriate Bugzilla bug. For bugs without any activity for longer period of time, fedora-devel list and proven packagers should be notified, ideally only in case the rebase finished without any problems.
