I agree. I like the update policy as it is now. As was mentioned, I
don't have to update if I don't want to, but it's very nice having the
packages available if I do.

So, my vote is for retaining the present update policy. I don't really
have anything fresh to add to what's already been said by others.
Well, I will add my thanks to Orcan for keeping the updated packages
maintained.  Actually, many thianks!
