As a Mageia user I would expect Mageia to package significant *bugfix
releases* and ship them in the updates for the stable distro.

For example, it would be nice if an up-to-date Mageia 1 system had
Python 2.7.2 rather than Python 2.7.1 (not a deal-breaker, of course,
but nice). There's more than a hundred bug fixes between the two
versions and I don't expect Mageia to have independently fixed many of
these bugs.

If you think shipping bugfixes isn't part of the QA for a stable version
then I'm not sure what said QA should be (apart from updating Firefox
to new major versions that is :-)).
