How to get notified of latest GA Release

We would like to stay on the heels of OpenJDK GA Releases. Such as current jdk8u20 and later jdk8u40. Is there any recommendation on how to go about it? Options that I can think of include:

1- A SOAP API portal would be nice, but I don't think it exists today.
2- How about mercurial itself? But I think I need some consistent tagging and the format of it. So far I know it looks like jdk8u20-bnn.
3- Parse some web page. This is least desirable. web pages are too artistic and they change every week
4- Email, same problem as web page, it restricts the publisher as well.

You guys know to recap....I want to run a cron and find out if there is a new GA release, and if so proceed with fetch and build.
