===Some not so related topics===
What bring interest in packaging extensions that are updated upstream? Well, they are packaged for the same reason that others rpms:
~- unified installation with others packages,
~- can be automated (i.e. if I have 200 computers, do I really update each of them by hand?)
~- unified interface, ie, no need to search on 3 or 4 differents websites or software
~- installed systemwide and updated system wide
~- ability to know the version, and to ensure a known good version is used
~- checked by packagers (i.e. it should work with the distro browser)
If "there is update on upstream" is sufficient to not package something, then we shouldn't package anything ...

including English!) and a GPL app, currently running on our webserver but available for everybody to install it on his webserver.
