The current schema is like the following:
* Packages to track are taken from wiki - 

If you want, you can just add packages to that wiki page. Unfortunately, 
currently you can't specify group different from "import" or 
"openmandriva" (so you can't use the service for your personal repo). 
But you can specify your ABF account there, Updates Builder will send 
you emails about update attempts:)

* Updates Builder launchers detect if new version exist on the basis of
1) Updates Tracker at upstream-tracker.org
2) mib-report tool which compares ROSA with OMV and MGA

* Updates builder builds a new version (of ot os detected) to the import 
group, to a separate auo_update branch. You are free to work directly in 
that branch, but note that in a week Updates builder will perform one 
more update attempt and will rewrite that branch, So likely it is better 
to fork the project to your personal platform or merge auto_updaet 
branch to your existing project.
