I try to explain in other words what I have in mind:

We let promote our product by a third party (i.e. eclipse). We could 
also try to get listed at or where 
ever. They are so kind to put our product in their list and we hope that 
it gets more popular. But I think it's up to us to inform them when our 
product has been updated or any new information needs to be put to this 
list. It's up to us to inform them because I don't think they spend 
their time to crawl all their listed stuff to see if something has changed.

My idea was to have a list about where we have promoted our product(s) 
and how to inform the third party that our product has changed and 
the'll kindly need to update their list.
