This is a sandbox project, which contains experimental code for developer use only.
See http://drupalcontribstatus.com/ for a demo.
A module to help power a dashboard sort of like this, leveraging as much as possible off of the fabulous http://drupal.org/project/upgrade_status module!
If you want to use this code for your own tracking site, feel free. To catch obsoleted modules, you'll need to apply the patch atto Upgrade Status.
Want to check a whole crap-ton of modules but don't want them installed? The http://drupal.org/project/update_advanced project has an option to scan disabled modules as well.
