This speaks to the quality of Ubuntu.

It is possible.

The current git master says:

        consider_latest_branch = bool(dbcfg.get2 (
                option = u'horstspace.update.consider_latest_branch',
                workplace = gmSurgery.gmCurrentPractice().active_workplace,
                bias = 'workplace',
                default = True

So, no, it considers the latest available branch by default.

However, even that means it shows information on both the
latest version of the current branch AND the latest version
on the latest branch.

It'll be challenging to provide sufficient, um, electricity
to the neurons of the world.

It also knows about other branches.
