43 Hi, Max. A couple thoughts... Just let me know if they are too crazy.
45 1. Could you enable the backend to ping devs/projects via email when a new release is available for their respective package(s)? Maybe make it optional for the dev/project to enroll?
47 2. What about a setting to allow the Python team to deprecate a particular interpreter then notify respective pkg owners that their ebuild needs updated?
49 This would possibly workaround the issues mgorny brought up regarding package.deprecated and noise for CI checks. Also, not sure if this is best implemented somewhere else first (e.g. pkgcheck) then leveraged by your work.
51 Just a few quick thoughts...
