I use a patched version of FEver for this; e.g. see

  http://ensc.de/fedora/Makefile.common
  http://ensc.de/fedora/fever-check.py.txt
  http://ensc.de/fedora/fever.py.txt
  http://ensc.de/fedora/fd-checkver

Then:

1. put first three of them into ~/.fedora
2. latter one into ~/bin (and adjust $D to point to a tree with your
   packages)
3. add
   | include ~/.fedora/Makefile.common
   to your ~/.cvspkgrc
4. create 'verinfo' in every branch of your packages; for sample content
   see

   http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/rpms/clamav/devel/?root=extras
5. execute 'make update-lastver'
6. create a cronjob like
   | 09 1-23/8 * * *    $HOME/bin/fd-checkver | grep -v ^OK
