Are addons kept up-to-date?

Not sure if this is the right place for this but: Are the addons on WOW Interface still up-to-date?

The reason for my question is this:

Up 'till now I updated my addons manually untill I started using Minion today.
I noticed serveral of my addons where actually more recent then what Minion wanted me to "update".
I started digging deeper, comparing versions from different sites and authors and found several "outdated" addons here on Wow Interface.
Some examples:

- Addon Control Panel (here r257, should be r259)
- Postal (here it is v3.5.0 but should be v3.6.0)
- Ovale Spell Priority (here 6.2.17 should be 8.1.0)
- Opie (here Lime 6, should be Walnut 1)

Itís enirely dependent on the author of the addon. This is a completely separate addon hosting site, not an automatic mirror or Curse backup.

Thanks for reply.
It's a pitty. I really liked the look and feel of the "Minion" updater (similar to the old Curse updater), and was going to recommend it to some friends of mine as an alternative to the bloated Twitch.
Unfortunately, this makes it unreliable, especially for those less "technical".

Guess i'll keep updating manually!

I use both, I just have to check if an addon is not being updated on a site and then I tell that site's installer to ignore updates if it isn't.

The same is true for the Twitch client, though. There may be addons that are not hosted on the Curse website or are kept more up to date here.
