I would already be happy if, for example, for the whole of the basedefs
(i.e. for all interfaces and requirements) I would have a place to store
the git-hash of the version I last updated the basedefs as well as the
list of most important files. Then I could later do the following to
figure out if there were any relevant changes which I need to take care of:

$ cd rtems
$ git pull

where for the basedefs for example:

HASH-OF-LAST-UPDATE = 766009b4f19ecdb7f193c683ca60d6d8570f15c5

LIST-OF-RELEVANT-FILES = cpukit/include/rtems/score/basedefs.h \
