Given that (as I understand it) the super-project master was produced
from the SVN release branch and develop from the SVN trunk, I assume
that means that:

1. the future automated process you describe above would be updating
only "develop" on the super-project (but from "master" on the sub-projects).

2. the super-project "master" will be updated manually by the release
managers, either periodically or just when it gets close to release
time, from some combination of prior sub-project "releases" (aka master
commits) that appears to be stable according to testing from "develop".

Is that correct?
