I own a web app that uses various vendor scripts (both javascript and CSS). Basically all of them have their repository on GitHub.

Every few months, I look to see which version of each vendor script I have deployed on my site, and have to manually go to the vendor's website to see if there's any update. If there is… I want to see the changelog so I can do an impact assessment.

I frequently notice I've missed major releases or security patches. This means I'm always a few weeks behind the 8 ball.

Is there a solid way to stay informed of if there are new stable releases without having to find an email list I can subscribe to for each individual vendor?

  • I don't think so. It's a nice idea so I'm going to look into developing this...
