this isn't entirely true:

1) Nedjo wrote the original implementation, but these days,  
update_status is maintained by myself and merlinofchaos (which is  
handy, since i maintain all the back-end server code in  
project_release.module, the packaging script, etc).  i'd certainly  
love to have nedjo's expert help again, but these days, he seems to  
be keeping himself busy with other things.

2) speaking of update_status knowing how to update your drupal  
modules from CVS...


(in particular, comment #4)

once the D6 feature/API freeze happens, i might be persuaded to  
return my attention to implementing the scheme i came up with there.   
if anyone else wants to work on it in the mean time, it's sketched  
out in fairly high detail, so it's not really blocked on me.  and,  
it's possible some of the groundwork for that will be done before  
update_status 5.x-2.0 and the move into D6, anyway.

i wasn't considering external sources, so that complication requires  
a little more thought, if folks really care about that.  but, the  
basics are well understood.
