for my sins, i effectively own updating ~666 (funnily enough, that's the
current count of projects in the AOSP external/ directory) open source
projects. so having some programmatic way of recognizing a new release is a
godsend, and a -announce@ list is the next best thing. (low volume * 666 ==
high volume!)

i know projects like LLVM have some kind of svn -> git mirroring going on, but
i don't know how that works. (and i'm not sure it would be able to recognize
_releases_ anyway. that might be something you actually have to explicitly do?)
