yeah, it needs to overwrite them for those multiple cases:
- you added a new dep to your project, quickly (p-d-e) detected it and 
updated it
- we updated the rule for new requirement (like /opt) in ubuntu
- you added/remove some person in AUTHORS file or changed the licence.

So, it's a tricky question, we need to discuss that next week :)
