1] MELPA should auto-magically update its version whenever a commit is
   made to the master branch of the emacs-w3m project github repository,
   so if you have M-x list-packages set-up for MELPA, then you can see
   the date and revision that they are currently using, and update that

2] Because w3m-el and w3m-el-snapshots are debian packages, they need to
   be manually or semi-manually built, and then go through a staging
   process passing through the 'unstable' repository, which usually
   takes a minimum of a few weeks, unless there is some urgent security
   issue in play. Separately, debian may be in some stage of
   'release-freeze', so it might be impossible to upload an update with
   this kind of patch to them.
