Since we're talking about dropping "Rolling Release: Finish MAR-based 
autoupdater for Windows (2021)" tender,

here are some comments I got concerning the related tdf#74934 "'Install' 
button in update dialog is never activated":


1) Do we still want this feature or should we just use update to know if 
there's an update (and the user does the job)?

2) Let's say I got 7.4.5 installed, do we want LO detects last version 
of branch 7.4 or last version of branch 7.5 ?

3) What's the status of the current implementation in LO?
it seems there are still work to do but not sure Markus would work on 
it? Above all it talks about daily builds, it's very specific. I don't 
expect someone who has important documents should give a try to a dev 
version only if very clearly informed.

4) if we enable this feature, who will treat the bugtrackers related to 
this? I may be wrong but only Markus was working on it, would he still 
want to help here? Did he have some backup who would help if it's not 
the case?
IMHO, if nobody is volunteer to work on this, the feature should be 
removed, no need to pile up bugs => less disappointment for users, less 
work for QA.
