Might be irreverent to this topic, but we ArchlinuxCN  community have this
tool `nvchecker`[1]
that can check updates of version numbers  for packages.
It currently have support for pulling version infomation from aur4/aur,
github, pypi, and many other upsteam sources.
It records the current version number in a plain text format, and
configures in INI format.
It can be extended to send desktop notifications, emails, or trigger other
commands like building the packages.
It is written and maintained by lilydjwg, as a part of our `lilac`[2]
package build bot for ArchlinuxCN repository [3].
But it can be used completely standalone.

BTW, I do think merging git commit messages into package comments might be
