So, if your limiting your scope to just those sort of packages,

just need to persuade the maintainers to push the changes as
maintenance updates..which should be easy to do, its less work

In that sense I guess you're right, but maintainers haven't been
doing that.

Perhaps, as you say, they should just do that.

Last I knew, an update could only be pushed if there was an open
bugzilla it was addressing.

That is one reason I know I haven't pushed routine updates via the
update channel.

Please clarify what the desired maintainer behavior is when a new
leaf
package release is available, but there are no reported bugs against
the old release.

Yes, it needs a bug, but don't make your life miserable for that.
GNOME for example has been pushing out dot releases on 13.2 twice
IIRC...

both times we just open a bug,
like bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=938799

It's merely informative that what will be updated (planning work) and
helps the maintenance team to report issues seen against an existing
bug... no black magic needed in there.

Cheers,
Dominique
