Anitya is a release monitoring project. It provides a user-friendly interface to add, edit, or browse projects. A cron job can be configured to regularly scan for new releases of projects. When Anitya discovers a new release for a project, it publishes a ZeroMQ message via fedmsg. This makes it easy to integrate with Anitya and perform actions when a new release is created for a project. For example, the Fedora project runs a service called the-new-hotness which files a Bugzilla bug against a package when the upstream project makes a new release.
