This is something that is normally worked out on an individual basis between
the Debian maintainer and upstream maintainer. A dedicated maintainer will
usually follow the appropriate mailing lists and take care of new versions
without need for any notification. Some appreciate a simple email reminder.
Some will rarely notice a new version unless someone reports a bug about it.
