Well, as the maintainer of the bittorrent package, at least whilst it's in Extras, I can assure you that updates won't take anything like 6 months to turn up ;-)

But not if it's taken into Core. The update may simply be not important
enough, and the current practice of Core is something like "if it's not
SECURITY, convince the packager that the update is needed for
FC$stable" or you won't get an update.

If bittorrent was in Core, it would be quite reasonable for the packager to take a different view of whether or not to leave the update notification enabled, I agree. But for the time being, it's in Extras and I'm inclined to leave it the way it is.
