There are no plans that I am aware of.

We consider those builders to be untrusted, because they run arbitrary code. As you can imagine, it is more complicated, though by no means impossible, to enable untrusted machines to access private branches without running the risk of exposing the contents of other private branches.

The main thrust of the feature was to allow open-source upstreams to produce daily builds of their code, and so we considered recipe builds from private branches branches to be out of scope.

Can you help with this problem?
