Is there reliable way to check for new Ruby releases?

Description

In Fedora, we are using https://release-monitoring.org/ to check for packages updates. Unfortunately, the content of https://cache.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/ is a bit inconsistent which makes this service unuseful.

If I open the page, there are listed a lot of packages, but for some reason, the later 2.6 releases are missing. There is a "stable" folder, but it contains just Ruby 2.3, which is quite stable, but I would expect there something more recent. There is a "binaries" folder, which contains some ancient binaries. There is also index.txt, which looks to be promising, but I am not sure.

So I wonder:

  1. What is the most reliable version information
  2. If it would be possible to clean up the repository
  3. and make sure the information is consistent

What is the most reliable version information

Use https://cache.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/index.txt. It's generated the latest package information every day by our system.

If it would be possible to clean up the repository

I removed "stable" directory and preview versions of Ruby 2.6. In the last year, We migrate the origin resource of our package distribution to s3 from dedicated server. We decided to put the latest packages only pub/ruby/x.y directory.

I updated the URL to the index.txt and the release-monitoring.org picked up the Ruby 2.6.0 just using the default RegExp. So it seems to work right now. I'll keep monitoring the situation with future releases. Until then, this is resolved I believe.

Thx for the cleanup and for clarification.
