Re: Addons website

Hi Adriani, about eMule add-on, I released version4.0 on Fabruary this year:

About the website, I think it's necessary to go on the workflow
proposed by Mesar and Reef due to the following reasons:

1. Sometimes admins put new versions of add-ons on the website though
nobody has reviewed the code, and this is happening long time ago,
since they are just a few people who can review code and a coordinated
procedure to decide about old add-ons, modifications or what to review
maybe good to maintain the increasing number of add-ons. Also, the
translations system for add-ons has suffered errors due to templates
used by authors or the way of saving po files used by some translators
and so on (I cannot specify the error related to each add-on that has
being affected).
Also, some of us try to inform to mailing lists of our languages about
add.ons, but this is not easy since this list is commited primarily to
human communication and the old used list for commits was broken due
to changes on Bitbucket. So we can loose messages and I think that the
workflows proposed by Mesar and Reef should be continued to get a
better coordination and automatic test to make easy the work of
Personally I think I am not able to manage these questions since the
number of add-ons is big and there are just a few people reviewing
code, and reviews aren't easy to find since they are not register in a
known way, but made on the listwhich has a lot of emails.
So I think I will wait until the proposed workflows can be managed in
a better way.
Comments are appreciated.

Also before moving an addon to the legacy, please check the github repo of
the author maybe there is a new version meanwhile.

OCR for example has been updated by NV Access as far as I know. So no need
to put this addon in legacy anymore.

And as far as I know there is also an update for enhanced area but I am not
100% sure about this.

Betreff: [nvda-addons] Addons website

Dear all,

let’s start yet an other round of checks for the addons website.

Following things should be resolved, @Joseph or @Noelia could you please
take care of?

1. Column review addon: this addon is only posted under development
section, however, there are two links on the website. One for stable and
for the development version. Both links lead to the development version
though. So I propose to delete the stable version link since this addon is
not posted in that section anyway.
2. Some addons show the wrong compatibility flag (i.e. wordcunt). The
addon on the website shows compatibility until nvda 2019.1 but I am runing
the new version on NVDA 2019.3.1.
3. How about Doug Lee’s addons? As far as I know he was asking for
uploading his addons also on the official addons website.
4. I think addons like focus highlight and screen curtain can be
removed since this is part of NVDA now.
5. Addons like Emule 0.5, crash hero, tip of the day, Mushclient, MIRC,
Bit Che, Ventrilo or BGT Lullaby are not updated since years. Is there any
progress on this? Otherwise I suggest to move these addons under legacy

Thanks and best regards
