The best way would perhaps be creating some repository-bound feeds which
YaST could display when updating or installing. Also such feeds should
be accessible either through a separate mailing list (to not spoil
already existing ones) or better as a RSS/ATOM feed.

There are rss feeds for the repositories, for example the gnome:stable
one is at

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/GNOME:/STABLE/openSUSE_10.3/repodata/latest-feed.xml

just look at the repodata directory of any of the repositories in a
web browser to see the repoview overview & repository feed.

e.g.
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/GNOME:/STABLE/openSUSE_10.3/repodata/

However, rss feeds are just pull-notifications, just like the
repository metadata itself. The rss feeds can also be bigger than the
metadata itself, certainly for just checking if things have changed.
Furthermore the repository metdata already has the same information in
a format the package manager & update notifier can understand, so
they're not particularly useful imho.

See http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/Concepts/Notification for the
proposed push-notification support, which will be very useful for
notifying packagers, third party integrations etc.
