I would prefer the system to be opt-out. For completely new maintainers
or anyone maintaining more than a few packages, it certainly is very
useful to get notification via bugzilla about new upstream releases.

I would also like to have a webpage where I can go to check the Fedora
vs upstream release status across all maintained branches including
Rawhide. So the information needs to be gathered for all upstream releases.

There are some cases where the website moves or fall off the face of the
earth or where upstream is completely confused about proper versioning
but that is the exception and not the norm. Can be dealt with on a case
by case basis.
