Hmmm, yeah; I'm fairly diligent about going to the
https://extensions.gnome.org/local/ and clicking the update button.
I can see the reservations with doing this automatically. Is an "upgrade
helper" app of some sort a good idea?
For the future, maybe we need to look at shipping more of these as RPMs. I
know RPMs are not the General Statement for the Future Of Distros, but it is
an existing mechanism we have for solving basically this exact problem.
