Hi Chris,

I personally use the "ck4up" [#1], a simple but very useful ruby script,
for mantain up to date my all packages in AUR.
It works doing a md5 sum of the page for find changes with regular
expresions to match some particular part of the page.
Can use aliases for common tasks and for urls.

I post my configuration file [#2] to serve as example. It contains 51
packages urls and some common aliases for URL like freshmeat,
sourceforge, cpan, and others. Also contain two aliases to match tarballs.

Good Luck!

PS: good work for the /dev/time for Linux ;)
