Ah, very cool!  I like being able to view the diffs for each version
(from the one previous to it) in a convenient way and with nice
formatting like this.  (So, thanks also to tankfeeder whom I understand
started this.)

Also having a script which checks periodically the "source" and
automatically creates a commit for any changes is "icing on the cake". 
Nice hack!  :)

That sounds cool too.  I wish I could help.  I don't use Debian (or
derivatives).  I hope someone is willing to help because it was a shame
how Alex asked for an update to the picolisp package in Ubuntu and was
getting "crickets".  :(  Better if we have something like your idea here
in play.

I love this script, man.  I like the "and chain" in the driver --
reminds me of `A && B && C` in shell.  I like how you got it (curl) to
check for changes and only if there are, download.  And overall it's
simple and easy to read.  I would want you to be hired on my team
because this is the kind of code that I would not mind at all to

Best, --Rick
