If the packager knows that the update fixes something, it would be wrong
to not publish it, and instead wait for some testers. It would be even
more wrong, if older updates for the package have not been tested either.

Consider yourself lucky, if your package is popular enough to attract
some brave testers. This is very different with other packages.
