If I want the bleeding version of "youtube-dl", which way would be more secure and trustworthy: downloading it from the official website and updating with "youtube-dl -U", or installing with python-pip and updating also with it?
It's a great (important) question & I'm unsure a clear-cut, definitive, anwser exists.
Python ~~ PyPi, pip, easyinstall, PyPM, Anaconda...
(the general question is also relavent for programs written in various other languages)
Haskell ~~ Cabal
Java ~~ Gradle, Maven, Ivy...
Objective-C ~~ CocoaPods
Perl ~~ CPAN (and CPAN-Plus, CPAN-Minus)
PHP ~~ PHP Extension and Application Repository (PEAR), Composer...
Ruby - RubyGems.org
Your post didn't mention virtualenv or pipenv.
Gawdknows whatall a pip install or update operation will blindly pull in (XX versions of YY dependencies) in pursuit of fulfilling requirements.txt
With youtube-dl specifically, for which MX already maintains a package... post a "MX package update request" would be the most secure way, ehmost secure way
