That depends entirely on the people listed for the subprojects.
Their local copy may be up to date and not reflected on the host.
For instance, I'm not sure what policy Bill Page uses to maintain
the windows branch.

The lack of upkeep on the server copy of a branch seems to be
completely independent of the issue of which maintenance system
to use. I doubt that people who don't update their server copy
would be motivated to do it under any other scheme. After all,
a commit in Arch is only one command.
