 I've made a plugin called child theme check to keep track of changes in
 the parent theme (See: https://wordpress.org/plugins/child-theme-check/)

 This would prevent security holes / missing features through unchanged
 files in child themes after an (security/feature) update of the parent

 There are slides from my talk at WordCamp Cologne which are explaining the
 issue that is solved by the plugin:

 WooCommerce has a similar system to show outdated plugin template files:

 There is Pull Request for the Theme Check plugin, too:

 I'm interested in opinions. Good idea? Maybe we can test this with the
 next default theme?
