Now that we have email addresses for the packages
(<package-name>@debian.org??) I'll raise something I thought about a while
Currently the only way that a maintainer knows about a new package is:
a) they keep checking the sites
b) someone tells them (often through a bug report)
c) they have a program which checks for new versions at a site
It would be nice to have an automated procedure so that package maintainers
don't have to do this themselves. I can see two methods (and both are really
a) subscribe <package>@debian.org to the announcement lists (with a limit on
the number of emails to be stored).
b) be able to specify a URL which can be checked for changes - for instance:
Am I just blathering on, or is this a workable and decent suggestion?
