Bugs about new upstream versions

Most packages are maintained by developers who are getting their job done
properly. They will notice the new upstream version and will update the
bug as soon as they can. Filing bugs will only take up their time.

If the package is not updated for a long while (say, several months),
for whatever reason, then filing a bug tends to be appropriate.
