Depends what you term "gratuitous". Following test (alpha, beta,
pre-) releases without a good reason is frowned upon. By contrast,
following regular/stable releases looks like a normal part of
maintaining a port to me. Bugs do get fixed, and frequently the
extent of this is not clear from the change log.

Yes, I think you are.
