Hi,

I would like PSI to auto-update to the most current version of a program, even when there are no security fixes in an update.

In my case, I see that PSI can patch Pidgin. But it doesn't do that, because the database has 2.7.2 as current version - though 2.7.3 is out for nearly week.

I'm aware that 2.7.3 has no security fixes and of the policy only to propose or execute updates if vulnerabilities will be fixed. But I think, if PSI can already update the program for security reason, there should be an option to keep it always up-to-date, regardless for whatever reason.

Maybe this could be optional. With a check mark for "always update to the most current version - even when no security fixes are applied" which is not on by default and in the Auto-Updates tab.

Although the Secunia staff do trawl the Forum over the weekend U should not expected a reply until next week from them.
