RFS has something similar in concept to pull requests. How about including in

I think that is a great idea, so long as it's an "updated package" RFS.

Do you see a way to make the idea work for all RFSs? (Honest question;
trying to get a sense of what you mean.)

Obviously, it will not work if the package is not a VCS, so it does not apply
to all RFS. But we can encourage it by showing examples, for instance in the
RFS template. From URLs like the one below, people can easily figure out the
correct one for their package:

Diff between revisions 5120 and 5399 of the imagej package:


Diff between the tags debian/0.1.8-1 and debian/0.1.9-1 of the samtools package:


That makes a lot of sense! I see what you mean.
