Feature Request: auto-sync your forks with upstream

Hello this is my first post on GitHub Community.

I have a feature request that might interest some people hope like in the 10s of Thousands.

Auto-sync of repo with a option to toggle it in each respective repo.

hope it gets added because it sounds like a good feature to have in case you need the bug fixes from upstream (as long as it does not break copyright)

if this feature does not get added i won’t worry about it then

That works awesome app but just wish it was a official feature not a unofficial feature.
