vc-checkup - cached version-control status checker
This program checks the status of a version-controlled checkout and prints a message if something has changed. It is suitable as a cron job for tracking changes to configuration or code directories.
It keeps a cache in your ~/.vc_checkup/ directory and is currently hard-coded to create a reminder message every 6 hours after a change. Your help and input are welcome.
This uses VCfs to handle the version-control actions.
