Release RSS Feed for GitLab CE

This may belong in meta but I’m wondering if there is an RSS (or Atom) feed of all GitLab CE Releases. I normally am notified of updates via the blog. However, I would prefer to monitor a feed. For example, for GitHub repos it’s at project/release.atom.

I thought of using the blog’s feed but didn’t see a consistent tag or category (maybe I missed it) but if there was that could be used. I also checked what I think is the CE releases on Gitlab.com itself: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/-/releases but that hasn’t been updated since 2015.

Hopefully this is an easy one for someone.

Looks like they are pretty consistant with the titles of the releases - the word release followed by a colon.

Use this “simple” one liner to extract the data you want from the blog feed.

http https://about.gitlab.com/atom.xml | xq '.feed.entry[] | select(.title|test("release:";"i")) | [.published,.title] | @csv'

xq is a jq wrapper for YAML and XML documents.
