repomon is a simple script designed to monitor various remote repositories and notify you when there are updates. It supports git, subversion, mercurial, maybe more in the future. It reads ~/.repomon.rc (can be overridden on the command line with -c), which lists one repository per line in the following format (delimited by whitespace): identifier protocol url [-bt] arguments... identifier: any unique identifier protocol: git, hg, or svn url: url of repository arguments: branch name (where relevant) or -b branch glob pattern -t tag glob pattern Blank lines and those beginning with # are ignored. When repomon is run, it prints (on stdout) any new activity in the repositories specified. For example, you may want a cron job like this: 0 6 * * * repomon For now the output is very minimal (basically just revision numbers), and there's no output if nothing has changed. The (human-readable) state is stored in ~/.repomon.state (override with -s). Examples: # watch for any new commits to subversion itself (branch is just appended to url): subversion svn http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion trunk # watch for any new commits to the linux 2.6 stable branch: linux-stable git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6-stable.git stable # watch for any new branch in the linux 2.6 stable repo: linux-rel git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6-stable.git -b # watch for new firefox release tags in the mozilla repository: firefox-central hg http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central -t FIREFOX_*_RELEASE
