For those who may not know, is a huge repository of announcements for Open Source (and a few proprietary) programs. The main page carries the latest announcements.

submission What is quite interesting for software developers, and this may be new to you, is that freshmeat has an XML-RPC interface to its submission engine. A Python implementation named freshmeat-submit was written by Eric S. Raymond.
