Its not :). One could change things to log it, but it would be limited -
write access would be required (so non smart-server branch operations
wouldn't log creation), and it would only get direct branch operations,
and most of the time the created branch would be useless
(file:///home/$USER/src/foo). We could go further and have a chain of
branches to notify backwards when new branches are made, to solve that,
but - I don't think that 'branches made from a branch' are particularly
interesting. *Much* more interesting is 'branches published for a
project' - and for that we have a decent solution at the moment - hooks
can notify/register (e.g. via, launchpad, and other services) on
