Agree on this.
Add-ons installed from beside the official pages should also have a feature to be updated through the Add-on updater.

Well I'd like a feature where you can choose to update addons from either the nvda addon database or thee author spaciffic addons.
Or find a way for something to automatically pole updated releases pages for authors periodically to get updates.
Some updates like tony's addons have not got latest updates to 1.14 and while you can request them manually added to the addon files database surely we need more sources.
Now I realise the potential for misuse but there are somethings that are not even in the main database.
Some others have made other sources and tools but there really should be other ways to select other databases and other mirrors and users.
I mean they do it in linux several sources at once.
Not sure how security would work though.
