How about having it create an RSS file, pretty much like repo-rss (in
yum-utils) does ? repo-rss only works on repos, which (AFAICT) have no
knowledge of what is new and what is updated, so I think we need a new
tool, but a subscribable RSS feed would help get-hot-new-stuff style

Then, the SIGs will ask you to have a separate feed by group in comps.xml...
(I can already hear the Games SIG :) )

I'd like to help, unfortunately I know very little perl. Would you consider
writing the tool in python ?
