Stop allowing Addons to not be update on Curse but instead GITHUB

I am by far not familiar with changing program files as the coders that create addon's are... If someone no longer wants to update said addons used by players then either remove or if in this case they only turn over a portion of ownership to some else and that person only can update thru GitHub .. What does that actually help some of the not so savvy player do. have to subscribe to another location and are left to figure out how to access coded replacements ... Hence the choice of Mod Authors to send this message to. Sorry it it was wrong option... Just very frustrated

    Project authors are the owners of their code, it's protected by license, according to the law. Not updating one's project doesn't mean anyone else can just grab and update it.

    If you meant something different, please explain.
