  Description     : new-version checker for software releases

 nvchecker (short for new version checker) is for checking if a new
 version of some software has been released.

This is a nice vendor-neutral solution for release monitoring. I think it
can also be quite useful in research, for example, to watch for updates of all
tools used in an analysis. And it doesn't have to be limited to watching
software releases, either. It could be applied to watching updates in
reference databases.

I intend to maintain nvchecker in the Debian group on salsa.
