Summary0004786: Skip all updates for a specific version
DescriptionI would like to mark a specific product (incl. version) to skip all future updates.

Some reasons why I want to mark them:
- A newer update is not compatible with hardware or OS
- Upgrade to a newer version is not free


Ignore would do a similar that job but
1) I want the product to be listed
2) Ignore would ignore the whole product line, eg version 8, 9, 10... I only want to skip version 8

Excluding a folder would be also no solution.

If you add such a feature I would prefer if the user can be more specific by choosing a set of major, minor, revision, build
a)
skip ALL updates (default?)
setwhattoskip = [major, minor, revision, build]
I think that it is clear how I imagine it
b)
skip all updates with higher major version
setwhattoskip = [major]
v1.2.3 would get offered v1.3 but not v2.0
c)
skip all updates with higher major version or higher minor version
setwhattoskip = [major, minor]
v1.2.3 would get offered v.1.2.4 but not v1.3 or v2.0
d)
skip all updates with higher build version
setwhattoskip = [build]
v1.2.3.4 would get offered v.1.2.4, v1.3 or v2.0 but not v1.2.3.5

I agree with this. SUMo needs to NOT count upgrades to a major version that are not free. And does need to find upgrades to an older, but still supported version.
Secunia PSI did a much better job at all thiu.
