Hi Stefan,

thanks again and again for your effort.
I keep an eye on monitoring in between, at the latest when there are 
major TW updates and zypper grumbles about problems resolving packages.

I dimly remember using monitoring at some point somewhere for some 
project that checked for differences on a site - similar to 
Maybe this is something usable (e.g. if you draw a frame just above the 
service blocks on the status page and then let it monitor them, an info 
mail should go out if an icon changes from "running" to "dead").
