Given that technical reports can nowadays be published either after
request to the W3C Webmaster, or automatically via Echidna, it might be
difficult for some groups to be kept aware of which drafts have recently
been published as official W3C technical reports.
To facilitate this tracking, I have added support for these new
notifications to my "github-notify-ml" tool that some groups are already
using to keep abreast of the activity on their github repositories.
What this mean in practice is that you can ask to have an email sent to
a given email address anytime a given TR document (identified by its
"latest URL") gets published.
(It’s 20x bigger, but with Redland it is relatively easy to parse. I just had to study a bit how to write my query in SPARQL...)
And server push doesn’t seem such a good choice anyway: apart from the difficulty of setting up a server behind a NAT and getting an SSL certificate, there is also the risk of missing notifications. Or does the Webhook server retry failed push attempts, like SMTP servers do?
