Yes, actually I did.  Perhaps I misunderstood your meaning here: are
you saying that it's policy in Fedora that a maintainer should not
keep their packages up to date in the best fashion that their
judgement suggests, in line with the above?

In any case, this is off-topic to the discussion; the question is
about imposing another manual task on a maintainer, rather than how
maintainers should exercise their judgement as to pushing updates
(which the above quote appears to address quite nicely).
