Keeping track of a projects progress is a common desire and if the project you are interested in happens to be a WordPress plugin then there are a number of RSS feeds which are an important resource for you (replace
plugin_slug with the plugins slug!).
The first of these contains all the support forum posts relevant to a particular plugin and the second is all the code changes that are happening in the plugins repository.
To keep track of these you have a couple of choices.
Firstly you could subscribe to them in your feed reader or if like me you like to receive emails for this sort of thing you can setup a cool tool called rss2email on your pc/server to email you new posts/changes.
I had a request recently for help on using my Query Child Of plugin to create a page template to show the grandchildren of a page as well as a number of people asking for better examples on how to use my plugin in general to just list the children of a page.
I am now happy to announce that I can provide these examples and have updated the plugin documentation on in the WordPress plugin directory to match as well.
