I can add the metadata to the database behind osc gnome, if you want.
"osc gnome todo" will let you know when there's an update, and you could
even use "osc gnome update" to do a good part of the update to a new
upstream version.

I didn't test it until now, but looks really good.
The tarballs are at

without odd version numbers are unstable or anything similar, all
versions are good.

Okay, will add. Just to clear any confusion: are you sure you don't want
odd version numbers for libebml? 0.6.5 was released in 2004 and the last
one is 0.7.8. (Same question for libmatroska, actually)

How does it exactly looks for new versions? It lists all the contents
of the URL and compares? What if the server doesn't allows to list? It
can parse HTML source for the string?

It looks at all URLs in the webpage, removes the ones that don't look
like URLs to tarballs for the module you're interested in, and then
compare the versions of the remaining stuff. At the moment, versions
like 0.3a won't work, but that should be fixable.

(this is the most basic fetcher; there's a fetcher for sourceforge that
does all the right magic, one for google code, one for launchpad, etc.)
