Installed Packages Erroneously Marked As Beta

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
I see WebIF >> Package Management >> Installed marks packages with beta versions as beta if you have opkg-beta installed, regardless of whether the user has actually installed the beta version:


(I'm told 2.2.12-6 is the regular issue).

This isn't very helpful when it comes to trying to remember which betas I'm testing on which machine.

This also raises another issue: beta packages are exempt from auto-update, so does that mean samba (in this case) would not update if a new regular version were released, despite a beta version not being installed?
I believe it would auto-update to an updated non-beta version, but it's a rather unlikely scenario.
The real problem is that things stay in beta far too long in the first place.
