Yes, I think patch level, security/functionality upgrades should be allowed.

As for distribution - I don't know if we need a separate branch for
updates, but I think yes, having separate branch for updates is a good

The downside of a separate repository is that users need to be aware of
it and subscribe both repositories, otherwise they won't receive
security updates. I think the following should work:

Atm I suggest we dont use a separate repository for security fixes, that
will just complicate things, let's have a working set of packages
