You want to get notified when there is a new upstream release. The problem is that not all projects offer rss feeds or an announce mailing list. And if they do they are sometimes too verbose or don't cover the updates you like.
So needed something to watch a certain website and tell me if anything changed. There are a lot of webservices, firefox plugins etc..; but they are all too complicated and just don't offer what I need.
Some other similar programs: * http://jue.li/crux/ck4up/ * Debian's uscan which can also download new tarballs if it detects them. It is much more complicated however.
