Can GitHub automatically merge branches?
We want to automatically merge out from master to another long-lived branch whenever any changes are committed to master (at the moment, this is a manual process and people forget)
I appreciate that it may not always be possible, owing to merge conflicts, but if it is possible, we’d like it to happen automatically.
Is this possible?

As I understand your question, a very nice blog post dealing with this can be found at git-automatic-merges-with-server-side-hooks including scripts.
