My goal would be to set a flag in recipes where I would like updates and than trigger "bitbake update-recipes". Bitbake would parse all recipes, check for the flag. If the flag is set, check SRC_URI (git url + branch), update SRCREV and in the end output a summary similar to git submodule summary (changed commits + changelog / git log --oneline). I feel a lot of the plumbing exists (eg from the fetcher supporting AUTOREV).
I think you might find auto upgrade helper useful:
It's built on top of 'devtool upgrade' and 'devtool check-upgrade-status', so you can use those directly in some kind of custom script as well.
