But seriously, to channel some pertinent thoughts which have come up before regarding updating the app and lists:
AdAway is one of the least needy of apps regarding app updates, and this stands out in a world of updates for the sake of updates.
I install the newest version of Adaway on every device at flash then install the one minimal (AdAway) list and restore 30 or so manually added items. The aforementioned scenario will remain unchanged with no updates for many months on my primary device, over a year on secondary devices, without becoming less effective.
I have admittedly light requirements for the hosts list but even for those who require larger and more recent host entries, updating the list is what you want. No need to get update-happy about the app unless, as mentioned, there is a specific sought-after fix in the works.
