> The OPAM tool indeed supports this model, but the automation infrastructure isn't fully written and deployed yet.  There are various tools in-flight that do portions of this, but none exist that poll the --dev repository (e.g. for a new GitHub release) and autocreate a PR.

yes, that's a very good idea! (and not difficult to do actually)
