[squeak-dev] A Monticello browser wish...

Hi All,

  a useful addition to our modern lifestyle
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JiRFG8r_Mg> would be an efficient
background visit to each repository in the full list of repositories
(obtained in the Monticello browser when no package is selected), to check
if any package in that repository has a package newer than those in the
current image, and then to highlight the repository description in bold
(that's the house style).  One could then check the list occasionally to
see if repositories other than trunk had updates.  One would need a
preference to limit how often the repositories were polled (once an hour
might be a good default), and it should happen below user processing
priority, and the background process easily discardable when the set of
repositories changes, etc.

best, Eliot
