Some people could read that to mean that there is still some automatic
mechanism for the updates, which of course isn't true.

Perhaps "Updates come from the community"?

I'm open to suggestion, but I'll observe that people continually ask
"what is the schedule to update XYZ port" which indicates a
misunderstanding of the way things work, and anything that we can
do to change that misunderstanding is A Good Thing (TM).
