Yes, but for what I suggested we need standardized location as well as
format to permit automatic extraction, formatting, processing, ... off-line. 
For just one glimpse at that consider Debian's changelog site at
changelog.debian.net (NB .net not .org as it is a contributed site), and
for a nine-year maintenance history of R within Debian.

I really want summaries to pop up in my rss reader to glance at what was
updated on CRAN.  But as Kurt pointed out, that may be Quixotic. Too bad.


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
