Some comments about possible add on problems

It is noted that although no errors of the audio alert kind occur on beta and alpha snaps for error warnings about add ons that seem to be suggesting that code is being deprecated and will not be supported, or indeed the syntax is incorrect.
So as most people will not notice these as they are silent, who is reporting the possible issues, and where are they reporting them to?
is there a central clearing site for add ons?
Also it did occur to me that folk who might rely on some add ons might need an audible warning of a potential issue on a future version of nvda, so maybe a well publicised add on for nvda which allows add on errors to be flagged audible might be an idea now. it will be too late when the new code mucks it up.
I'm assuming that these warnings are just that at the moment, ie, since the add ons seem to be still doing what they do.
The two I've noted thus far are the sound schemes on and mp3 direct cut, but since there has been no audio warning, I'd have no idea the warnings existed and neither would anyone else as they are just warnings and hence silent.


I'm sure the authors would be glad of such a facility to monitor the problems coming up, as nobody is going to study the complexities of the changing code in nvda all the time.
Lastly as in most of the error warnings I've seen suggestions are made for what to do to fix them, some bright person might like to make an auto correction tool. OK pi in the sky.. Pun intended.
