VersionEye is crawling Packagist once a day for new packages and new versions. Packagist is treating new branches as versions. Some PHP projects, like cakephp, are very active and they produce many new branches.
Up to now VersionEye send out notifications for each of this new branches. Some of our users complaint already that they don’t want to get notified about each branch. That’s why we refactored the crawler for packagist. Now we check for each new “version” if there is a corresponding tag on GitHub. If we can’t find a corresponding tag on GitHub we skip that version, because it must be a branch.
This change does not effect the already crawled data.
