Internally, this used to work this way (and probably still does): the 
Extensions site advertises the latest version of its extensions (like, 
it says, the latest version of hunspell.dictionary.english -this is a 
made-up identifier- is 2015.05.01); OpenOffice does the comparison and 
if it determines that the installed version is "older" then it proposed 
the update.

In short: if you install version 0.9, then you upload version 0.10, the 
Extensions site will advertise that the latest version is 0.10; but 
OpenOffice will consider 0.9 to be "newer" (comes later in alphabetical 
order) than 0.10 and won't ask you to update. Using a date-based schema 
solved all these issues for me. This is why I use and recommend it.
