Hanging out in #phpwscommerce on freenode, my man Wendall asked for a bot to check bugs on Sourceforge.net. I whipped up a module for mozbot and presented him (and now everyone) with SFTracker. Since all Sourceforge trackers (bugs, RFEs, support requests, and patches) are all the same, SFTracker will do those too.
The only thing it really does is scrape the tracker item description out of the HTML "title" tag. That seems to work for us, hope it works for you. Enjoy.
