Deploy to Netlify Button and upstream changes

The deploy to netlify button is an awesome way to quickly start a site, I’m just wondering is there any way to keep it up to date with the original repository after the deploy? It seems to create a new repository from scratch in my github account (not a fork), so any upstream changes/fixes will not be visible.

Is there any workflow to handle this?

Hi @lpellis,

Currently there isn’t. What happens when you click a “Deploy To Netlify” button is that we clone and deploy that repo to a new Netlify site. Once that deploy is done, we take the cloned repo and push it to a new repo on your github account.
