To take care about abandoned extensions, extensions which got not updated in thier description or did not get a new release in the past 12 month, owners will recieve an email stating this. They have a period of one month to react and put the extension in a curent state. If after one month nothing changed, the extension is disabled.
Mail to request update
Subject: OpenOffice.org extension repository: Your extension was not updated since a year: $title_of_extension
Hi extension owner,
you recieve this mail because of your entry in the OpenOffice.org extension repository: $title_of_extension + $link
Your extension was not updated since a year, please take care about your extension during one month otherwise your extension will be disabled.
This is the time to check if your extension still works with a curent version of OpenOffice.org: http://download.openoffice.org/
Your options to update your extension:
- upload a new release of your extension.
- edit your description text, and submit a change.
- do nothing and your extension will get disabled in one month.
cheers Thorsten Bosbach
