Collectors are the first step in each build. Their job is to determine what you have installed, and which versions are available. Each collector is a Docker container, and can have any software installed that it needs.
With release notes in-hand, actors can notify you however you like. Pull requests can deliver the update straight to your repo, and can even run custom commands that are specific to your workflow. If you'd rather handle updates yourself then you can use issues, Slack, or other types of notifications to kick-start the conversation and let everyone know what's available.
