apart from adding layers of "really useful" stuff another favorite weenie passtime is implementing the very latest language features regardless if it makes sense useful or not. Even if doing so they manage not to not break the code they do ensure it becomes incompatible with people using older versions of the dev platform.

shitloads of unmoderated stuff on github is constantly "updated" to use the very latest features of c# (or whatever language), and it's just too bloody bad for people using that if they are still on vs2015 or earlier.

like idiot kiddies that feel a strong need to mount a wing on their car, 75% of the time it does nothing because their POS car is too useless to have it matter, and 24.9% of the time it'll actually reduce / retard safety and performance.

my rules for using open/other peoples code/source/hell other peoples anything:
- always copy and use local version only. (reference/acknowledge the origin in comments only)
- if/when possible/time replace it with own code ... (other peoples code is always sh*t.)
- only ever update if there is a very strong reason ... (small problems fix it yourself).
- don't use just because it's there and looks cool. ... (today's cool is tomorrows dog vomit.)

Why? Well delivering applications, packages and even complete systems to clients:
- stability is 1,000 times more important than being the latest thing out there.
... and that saves me a shitload of 3AM Friday night headaches I don't need
