Everyone ... it just adds extra loads on the infrastructure, has the
potential of wasting users and mirrors bandwidth and even worse just
adds a risk of adding regression for little to no gain.

And a packagemaintainer should be able to judge whether the package is
worth pushing or not.
"It has a higher version number" can't be the reason for that. (and I
don't see how anyone can disagree with this but well ...)
