    Open VSX allows anyone to upload an extension there with the same name and description from the VSCode marketplace, but silently change code or make new releases, maybe introducing misfeatures or malicious code. Users typically don't notice because they think they are installing "the same" extension from the VSCode marketplace.

    > Hi ;)

    > I never published a version v999.0! It seems like you are using the unofficial open vsx marketplace (where, apparently, anyone can upload anything). You can find an issue here in this repository about it.

    > Unfortunately, someone uploaded the extension in that version which blocks any further updates with that name.

    > For now I believe in Microsofts vision. I don't think a secondary marketplace is good for the community - It just causes confusions like this.

    > If you setup a github action that automatically publishes this extension to open vsx, please open a PR! ;)

    The established practice of having random individuals set up ad-hoc mirrors of VSCode extensions is a serious security issue.

    If Open VSX wants to mirror VSCode extensions, that's okay - but they should do so with an automated process that mirrors ALL extensions and do not allow for people to silently change the code of an extension.

    If someone want to copy the code of an existing VSCode extension, change some things and upload it to Open VSX, that's okay too, but please fork it and clearly indicate in the description that the extension is a fork, linking to the source code of the original extension.
