There are in fact two seperate automatic modes.
One for commit and one for update.
And at least the commit part should be controllable by the server
So perhapse there should be two properies:
both defaulting to 'off' and options 'per-user' and 'on'
the latter might be useful for automatic website updates or such.

If there are two properties, there should be two (sub)menu entries
And menu entries could/should reflect the state.
I'm thinking about menu entries with a check mark on the left side.
If the related property is 'off' or 'on' the check box should reflect
the setting, but the menu entry should be grayed-out to indicate that
the user has no choice here.
In the 'per-user' setting menu entry would be displayed in the normal
colors and reflect the user choice.
In light of the restrictions regarding icon overlay slots I refrain
from proposing additional overlay icons 8-)
