You jump to conclusions. Having a script approved once does not mean every 
follow up script is perfectly fine. Things can change, in the tarball, the way 
it builds, etc. Although most updates are indeed only simple version bumps, 
also those simple changes can be tricky at times.
Also, even the best maintainer is not perfect and can make mistakes. That's 
why there's the "multiple eyes" approach on SBo.
