I understand that.  In Windows I don't run the installer for every update. 
I just rename the old script and copy the new one unless 
there have been changes to other components.  I dare say I can do the same 
in Linux if there is any urgency.  I was just puzzled that previous updates 
to the PPA had been available within hours while this one was taking longer.

An advantage of updating manually is that I can keep old versions of the 
script, if I want a feature that is no longer in the current version.  For 
example with v2.99 and rtmpdump I was able to download Alastair's p0081fsp 
Flash clip (although that doesn't help Alastair if he hasn't kept the v2.99 
script and rtmpdump).

Best wishes
