Archiving the ReleaseHawk project

In late 2017 we started working on a side project which had a unique requirement: monitor a dependency which is not an NPM module. In our specific case, we needed to monitor a GitHub repository for changes. If you are familiar with projects such as Dependabot, the requirement is identical. ReleaseHawk was born out of these efforts and published to the GitHub marketplace.

Introducing ReleaseHawk

Today we're launching ReleaseHawk— a GitHub app that manages your dependencies that live outside your package manager. In today's environment, we've grown accustomed to having our dependencies come from a package manager, such as NPM, Maven, or NuGet.
