Description

"Additional software" are checked for updates every time the network gets connected, which is rather annoying and pointless on a bad Wi-Fi network for example. i propose to have "additional software" checked for updates only once per working session: after the first connection to Tor.

Is this supposed to be part of our work on Additional Software Packages?
