hi Robert, thanks for asking. Here is a better description:

I make changes to my local xeyes repo, and drone builds the package when I
push the changes. A patch gets created on successfull build and gets emailed
to alpine-aports.

The patch then gets applied to xeyes in the aports tree

At this point both xeyes are identical.

But if you, Robert, modify the xeyes package in the aports tree, i need a way
to pull those changes into my local xeyes repo automatically, so that they are
always in sync.

Does that make sense?
