It is, without question, the new cool thing. I keep hearing hints that something interesting along these lines is coming, but nothing specific. I hope the mini-rumors turn into something really nifty.

Hi guys. I'm still having problems with self-updating on this one. It seems to get stuck when it comes to updating itself -- presume it's a R/W thing when one python module is 'locked' and in use? Any way to fix that?
Also I think I might be missing the point of the update checker now found in the scripts folder since it can't actually install the updates?

I always just go to plugins/programs using File Manager and rename it to something other than SVN Repo Installer i.e. SVN Repo Old.
I then go to programs and click the newly named program, navigate to plugins/programs and install the SVN Repo that way. This method can't be used to click Check for Updates to find the newer SVN version since the name has been changed. It's not the prettiest fix, but it works.

Well that isn't too elegant is it? I hope the xbmc plugin devs don't mind my prodding, I'm really keen to see this whole process become more streamlined and user-friendly.

I'd like to request a simple "Automatically update all" function to the installer. Since I have a lot of plugins installed it's often the case that I have to go through and manually click to install each updated plugin (after an update check).
Updating SVN Repo Installer - marstedt - 2009-06-16 20:13
You can update the SVN Repo Installer using the XBMC-Addons Installer. And where can you get the XBMC-Addons Installer now .... ummmmmm ?
Way back when, it used to be here:

the script should be able to self install, I'll look into it and the possibility of an Update All

Awesome. It would be great if the XBMC devs would start including this plugin by default in the distributed builds. I think we'd end up with more testers and more high-quality plugins if more people knew about them. And then you could have a default "update all plugins" option in say, the favorites menu...
v1.7.6 - BigBellyBilly - 2009-06-17 00:32
now fixed to allow self update from the 'Check for Updates' list.
As with all updates, it should create a backup into <addon_category>/.backups
NB. The existing "self update" (from v1.7.5) does work only if installed from the 'Addons (trunk)' - browsing section, so use that to get this new version.
If you have debug on, you'll notice the xbmc log for the calling of the plugin will contain "self_update=True".
'Update All' will take longer.

For some reason 1.7.6 is locking up on me when I check for updates in WinXBMC. It gets to the last script/plugin in the list and then just stops. Is there a cache I can clear somewhere that might clear it up? I'll try to get a log tomorrow.
When I add this to the repositories, I encounter the hang when doing an update check.
