    After following the instructions here, maverick still thinks the most up-to-date version of filezilla is 3.3.3?

    Same issue here. While I can see the PPA entry in my software repository, only 3.3.3 is available.

    Looks good, it says:
    ‘filezilla,, Nate Muench (Mink) (2012-12-09)’

    && also the maintainer is a relatively long-time member, from 2008-11-07 and the karma is high: 1349 atm., but everyone (different blogs and web sites) is always suggesting different people (PPAs) for different stuff which makes it kind of hard to know what to *trust*

    Would be nice, if he was a member of like an official team and/or had a real photo of himself and/or kept more than just keys in his info (there are many possibilities, the other day I contacted a dev on Freenode: finding the contact information listed in his PPA)

    ^^ or something like that, you know what I mean; especially when it comes to sensitive stuff and software, but really, it can be with pretty much anything.

    Making/building things aren’t always possible. Tnx for the article!..:)
