Are you sure? At the moment, the latest changeset is 1.1027, made at
12:49:07 -08:00 today. That's just under four hours ago.

In any case, it would be better not to have to poll a website to get
updates, but have them actively delivered by smtp, which brings us
back to what I first suggested:

Why can't we have a mailing list that sends out a diff for each
update?

That way, all you need is:

:0
* ^X-Mailing-List: up-to-the-second-linux-patches
| /usr/local/bin/apply_patches

and

#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/src/linux-current
cat | patch -p1
mail $username
