[arch-general] Monitoring changes to [core], [extra], [community]

Is there some convenient way of monitoring changes to the Arch repos?

The reason for asking is the work we do in ArchHaskell. Due to how ghc
(the Haskell compiler) works it's necessary to re-compile and re-link
a package when one of its dependencies changes. In this case "changes"
includes a bump of pkgrel as well. Currently we're not trying to track
any changes to the dependencies living in [extra] and [community],
which means that at times packages in ArchHaskell breaks until a user
notices it. Are there any tools that can help out with this?

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
