I agree that it's probably not desireable to be able to "randomly" add
packages to others updates, but it would be quite nice to link updates
so that when the Firefox update is pushed the update for FF-Extension-X
is also pushed.

It needs to be a lot easier for people to get notified when there us
updates-testing packages for packages they care about and can help
testing. Much can be done there. Currently the threshold between using
