In this week's weekly Drop An article titled " A Community Service That Tells You When To Upgrade Your Site To Drupal 8" got my eye and here it is.

Free module upgrade status notifications, tailored to your site
With the imminent release of Drupal 8 site owners keep asking us when it would be a good time to upgrade their website. For most sites there is no easy answer. Much depends on the upgrade status of the contributed modules that were used in their site, their budget, and the level of rework they intend to do during the upgrade process. Since it can be a daunting task to keep up with the status of the modules, especially for people who are not working with Drupal on a daily basis, we thought it would be useful to create an automatic notification system that sends out updates when new information becomes available about the modules you use.

I am in the process of adding few Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 test sites just to see how great the site will do in telling me when to upgrade. Stay tuned for more updates.
