IIRC Gentoo has a script which checks freshmeat daily and informs package
maintainers about new versions. Something like this could be a first start.

Another thing which would be cool would be to automatically check other
distribuions' bug-tracking systems for patches. The aim would be to make such
patches and bug fixes easily available to the openSUSE's package maintainers.
Surely they couldn't be applied automatically but having them compiled in a
nice list would be very convenient. Isn't Ubuntu working on such a thing in
the long term?
