Emergency notice: hold off on add-on releases until release pipeline is fully operational again


 

Hi all,

Thanks to Abdel, it was discovered that the add-on release pipeline isn’t working. Specifically, whenever changes are made to add-on files repo, it isn’t sent to community add-ons website. This causes people to download older versions instead of what the authors intended.

A new issue was filed with mrconfig repo at:

Add-on files: changes to add-on files repo isn't syncing with add-ons website · Issue #12 · nvaccess/mrconfig (github.com)

 

Therefore, until the pipeline is fully operational again, please hold off on releasing add-on updates. Exceptions include Braille Extender and development versions of Windows 10 App Essentials and StationPlaylist add-ons i.e. add-on channels with links not ending in “.nvda-addon”. If you absolutely need to release add-on updates, please provide the actual download link as part of your post until the pipeline returns.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, I've checked this to inform on one of the spanish mailing lists
for NVDA (owned by me), and your issue is closed via a PR. Now the
link provided by Abdel works correctly and mp3 direct cut 20.11 is
downloaded.
Cheers
