Hi, I'm trying to follow the development of different pulumi packages, but I feel it's not an easy thing to do. You have changelogs for every repo with the necessary information, but as far as I know, it's not possible to watch 1 specific file for changes. I'm trying to use the "Releases only" watch future, but it does not always work, because if I'm not mistaken, you not always using releases, just tagging a specific commit, which is not triggering the watch notification. For example check the kubernetes repo: I got notification about the v0.25.6 release, but there are 3 new tags, but I didn't get any notification about those. Other repos are worse, e.g. the pulumi/pulumi repo does not have a single release, just tags. You have an announcements channel and you post the major updates, but not all. Would it be possible to create a new release for every single version in every repo? No need to put any description in it, just to trigger the notification. You can even create pre-releases for versions like the 1.0.0-beta2 or the new rc releases. I know it's not a big deal, but with that many repositories and fast development/lots of version could be annoying.

I don’t work for Pulumi, but the way I suggest handling this is with Dependabot if you are using GitHub. You’ll get the notifications when there are changes via a PR for the upgrade.

Thanks but it's overkill, maybe I don't want to update, just wanna check what's new 🙂

I do think we can likely do this as part of the publishing process (along with publishing to npm and pypi we could generate a GitHub release). This is a good idea - would you mind opening an issue with the suggestion?
