    I've been away from it for a while, but yeah, it does get updated fairly often. Usually, you can get ahold of a base set and then find sets that are just updates to what you've got...i.e. only the rom files that are updated/added/different somehow are included, but not the ones that you should already have. Or at least that's how it used to be done

    I got one of those rom sets back in the 90's, with around 2000 games on it and a very early version of dos Mame.
    Nowadays I just download individual games that I miss, or sometimes some games become incompatible with newer version of Mame and I redownload them.
    Yeah I couldn't keep up with a full rom set, I just get what I can on a need to play basis....
