Sync Views should sync branch meta data changes
Sync views only push and pull pending changesets. However, when working with features like code reviews, new meta data is added to the branches without creating new changesets. In this situation, it is impossible for the user to know which branches have new meta data and they are forced to manually pull each branch to get the changes.
Besides the user experience issue, this breaks the concept of replication itself in my opinion, since the sync view is not keeping my local repo completely up to date with the remote.

Voted, would definitely be useful in our process

Upvote sync'ing of meta and code reviews

Yes, it probably should.
Problem is that tracking the attributes which is what I think you are missing, or the labels, to check whether the replica should be fired or not, would greatly impact performance.
Not something we are against, of course, and we should probably find a solution that is fast enough and good enough.
We need to wait for users to vote it up, though.
