Brew livecheck block

It will be helpful if someone explains what is livecheck block added in formulae and how it works. And also it will be useful if someone shows how to add this for a tar based formulae.

It would also be useful if someone gave me unlimited funds to work on Homebrew all the time.

Eventually, livecheck will be documented on our documentation site. The writing of the documentation is still in process, but you can take a look at https://github.com/Homebrew/brew/pull/7937 for a pretty detailed overview of how to use livecheck. If you take a look, just note that several things have changed since the PR was made, so not everything is up to date. The basic idea and execution, though, haven’t changed.
