Confused about multiple repo's and addons
« on: July 16, 2017, 11:46:33 pm »
Things are changing so fast in KODI, that I am confused. I have multiple repo's (such as Colossus, Smash, Ares, and
Cipherlocker) ALL which contain multiple copies of addons such as SALTS, EXODUS, URLRESOLVER, CCloud, F4mtester, and others. Do I need to keep all of these? Will these multiple addon copies, will updated process correctly?

Please clear up this confusion...

Just keep the repos that are the true "caretakers" of the add-ons.
Smash and Colossus are the main ones now.
Smash is the repo for 1Channel, IceFilms, SALTS and Exodus which are the longest running add-ons so it should be the one you keep.

As an example, EXODUS is in SMASH repo, and has not had an update of EXODUS since June. I just installed the
Cypherlocker repo (from Ares), and I instantly got an EXODUS update from Cypherlocker, while no update from SMASH.

that unofficial "update" was by ColdFire ... Cypher may just have it in his repo, as it seems like everyone wants to host Exodus nowadays, without actually maintaining it

and the dependencies like URLresolver are maintained officially by JSergio who resides in Colossal Repository, but associates with Smash
