I think the burden on admins is high enough and Willy has been doing an
amazing job at keeping the pending queue empty. Contacting a maintainer
after modifying anything would take too much effort and documenting any
changes in the script inflates it for no reason (the git log already
does this quite well).

I personally maintain a local git repo for any SlackBuilds I maintain,
and before making any changes for future submission I just download the
SlackBuild's tarball from SBo and diff the files to see upstream
changes. This takes under a minute for the maintainer and lets the
admins continue on as they have been without any additional effort.

I really don't see a problem with things as they are...
