You may well have more success than I do. Finding the current upstream 
version for packages on hosting sites is easy, doing it for joe schmoe's 
website isn't so simple... If all you want to do is monitor what 
packages you maintain that are actually /marked/ out of date, that's 
simple.. I could throw together a shell script for that in a few seconds 
(let me know if you think I should).
