Today while I was updating my Firefox extensions, it occurred to me that
this would be some really nice functionality to have in a CMS. What if
every time an admin logged in or ran a "Check For Updates" module, he'd get
a list of his active modules with lower version numbers that what's
currently available in CVS? Maybe the list has a link to each module's
project page for immediate review and download.
The module itself sounds like it would be relatively simple: parse the
version number out of each of the module files and compare them against a
master list of current versions. The trick would be that master list. I'm
imagining something like an XML file hosted on cvs.drupal.org that generates
on call (or maybe once a day).
Does this sound interesting to anyone but me? Is there any way we could
extract latest version numbers from CVS?
