Software development is scattered across platforms such as GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, SourceHut, Gitea, Forgejo, bare cgit servers, and many others. Releases are usually announced where development happens, but none of these platforms agree on how to present them; some have RSS feeds, some have APIs, and some have nothing more than bare Git … or Mercurial or Fossil or Pijul or {insert preferred VCS}. Manually checking each platform for new releases of particular projects is just not feasible.

In this talk, we'll delve into this issue and explore potential solutions. We'll discuss both established methods that may have been overlooked and emerging solutions that are in active development.

(For greybeards, think of this as a modern take on Freshmeat/Freecode/Freshcode/etc.)
