SUMo still reporting Dropbox beta update when no betas allowed

Post by OldNavyGuy »

Now it's with version 159.3.5805

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/user/vi ... -id/308787

As before...

Dropbox makes it clear on its site which release is a beta, and which is stable.

The "Allow Beta versions" box is unchecked in SUMo.

Not sure why this keeps occurring.

Only when a new beta is out until it gets reported and I manually flag it.

That doesn't sound too good...

So are you saying there is no way on your end to tell that the Dropbox release is a beta?

It's pretty clear on the Dropbox site...

Yes but it's manual tagging on my server which sometimes may time some time... and goes super fast after user reports here :-)

That wastes a users time by -

1. Finally discovering that the update is in fact a beta (when the software has the option to not include betas).

2. Reporting it.

Seems like there needs to be a change in your process.

Users should not do the job the software is supposed to do.

It's not based on user reports, but classification is accelerated if user reports. SUMo globally has a low false positive rate
