As a maintainer (even if not of openSUSE packages) I personally always have considered a friendly mail much nicer than a bug report requesting an upgrade, all the more if it comes with an offer to help and maybe shares who/why it would help.
Jason, I imagine that while you are not familiar with OBS yet, you'd be able/willing/happy to help by testing an update once its packaged and provide feedback. Or may be an upstream maintainer or be engaged with those, and can help that way. Or share a pitfall with that new version you are aware of. Or offer chocolate. Or ... :-)

Thanks, I already opened the bug but I shot him a personal email also. If OpenSUSE Conference is still on in NUE this fall, I'll buy him a beer :).
