some extensions, like dictionaries, are matured, and no frequent update is needed. So a warning when only a year is done since last update is a bad choice for home users.
Some samples of well mature extensions:
Slovenina dictionary: http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/slovenian-dictionary-pack
Such extensions must be allowed to have a long term (3 years?) before the warning is showed.
Cc'ing Andreas on this
It is a reminder for the project owner that he should look at his extension or template and think about adding a new version of LibreOffice to the compatibility list. We create new major releases for LibreOffice every six month. If the extension works with this new releases too the project owner could simply add an item to the compatibility list of the release and re-publish the release. Once this is done the warning has gone.
In my opinion this is not a bug but a valuable feature (reminder). I don't want to change this.
Here is an How-To remove this warning in few steps:
- go to the webpage of the extension
- select Releases
- select the last published release
- click on State > Re-release this project

It is good to remind project owners for that, but currently it gives potentially wrong information to users mostly.
So reminding should be done by mail or whatever..
I think this is a bug and it would be good if it can be improved with the rework :)
Correcting status to NEW.
